Generally, HRAGNH members are strong supporters of our mission and very considerate of others. However, some members have felt inappropriately and/or uncomfortably solicited by certain other members. Therefore, we’ve found it necessary to establish guidelines for this type of activity.
Members are not to be openly solicited for business during chapter meetings. This means that:
Strict adherence to these guidelines will provide a comfortable, professional, and pleasant intimidation-free environment for all members.
