  1. 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.




  2. Hi Stephen,

    There are two ways to join:
    – register if you’re a member
    – suggest a topic for a panel you’d like to participate in


  3. 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.



  4. 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


It's a conversation, tell us what you think! Comments are moderated so it might take some time for your comment to appear (we're only humans, no bots work here)
