    Hi IIAR-

    I would like to be more involved in these discussions as I have tons of experience defining best practices.

    What’s the process here?

    Also, please join me on my Twitter AR chat called #archat on Monday’s at 11 a.m. EST.

    I would like to join in this activity from KS. Possible?

    Also, would like to recommend IIAR host tweet chats similar to #archat. Very informative and great way to exchange ideas, globally.

    Hi Pamela,

    We’ll look at twitter chats but I find the medium a bit awkward for a live exchange and also there are some benefits to hosting those conversations on our Extranet (members only).

    You can join from Kansas, you just have to be a member. If you aren’t, you can join or ask for a free trial membership to jcourtenay at analystrelations dott org
