Welcome to the AALU Online Forum!

Blogging is an open and transparent process, and we at AALU are pleased to bring you this online forum. Online “blogging” is a great tool for exchanging ideas about the issues that affect our industry. Yet it is also important to remember that posting a blog is like sending an email to our entire membership. Once posted, anyone can read what you wrote.

Listed below are some tips that will help you in the process becoming active in the AALU online community. Taking the time to think about every post before you publish will save you embarrassment and public criticism. It's important that all members consider his obligations to his employer and colleagues when writing on a blog.

1. The blogger's or AALU’s opinion? – Though AALU does not necessarily endorse the opinion of every comment posted on the blog, keep in mind that as a respected leader in the insurance industry and an AALU member, your opinion will carry weight, and will reflect on our membership as a whole.

2. Respecting copyright, fair use, and financial disclosure laws - If quoting material from other sources, don't quote more than short exerpts from copyright material, and link to quoted web material. Be aware of your own company's or another company's confidential or other proprietary information and do not disclose such information. Don't cite or reference clients, partners, or suppliers without their prior agreement and approval.

3. Respect your audience - Don't use ethnic slurs, personal insults, obscenity, etc., and show proper consideration for their privacy and for topics that may be considered objectionable or inflammatory.

4. Correcting mistakes - Be the first to correct your own mistakes, and don't alter previous posts without indicating that you have done so.

5. Identify your role and position in your company - Especially if you or your company has an interest in what you are writing about on the blog, express your company's interest or your own in the subject by citing the interest in a post.

6. Disclosing private information - You are welcome to disclose your personal information on the blog, but ask permission if you are disclosing another person's private information.

AALU will monitor the blog for objectionable material, but if you happen to see anything that you feel should not be posted, please contact Sarah Larysz at gro.ulaa|zsyral#gro.ulaa|zsyral and the content will immediately be removed.
