Purpose and Intent

WOEMA’s Community Forum is a membership privilege. Education of its participants is the primary purpose by providing open discussion of WOEMA topics. Members should limit the content of their posts in these sections with this in mind and refrain from drifting from the topic of the original post.

Rules of Usage

Conduct towards others: You may post a supporting or contrary opinion at any time, but, be respectful and do not criticize, degrade, or threaten others.

Advertising: Do not post commercial messages. This includes, but is not limited to, marketing, selling, or soliciting products or services. However, members may post information from a vendor or post a link to a website where additional inspection related information, services, or products are offered.

Prices: Do not post any information regarding prices for services or information concerning market shares, sales territories, profit margins, pricing practices, discounts, or other terms or conditions of sale or the selection or rejection of customers.

Intellectual property: Do not post any information or material protected by copyright, or use any words, logos, or other marks that would infringe upon the trademark or other intellectual property rights of the owners of such marks without the permission of such owners.

WOEMA Policies: The Community Forum may not be used for discussing WOEMA policies other than questions seeking the opinion of other inspectors as to the meaning or application of current policy. The Board of Directors, WOEMA’s Executive Director, or WOEMA staff do not respond to inquiries posted on this Community Forum. Contact your Board of Directors or WOEMA headquarters as needed.

Privacy: Do not post any confidential information or any information that would infringe upon the proprietary, privacy, or personal rights of others. Be aware that anything you post can be copied, pasted, and spread to the world.

For legal use only: Do not post any illegal information or material or utilize the Community Forum in any illegal manner. State law prohibits anticompetitive practices. No express agreement or understanding is required; an agreement can be inferred from statements or conduct. Antitrust laws generally prohibit any agreement or understanding inconsistent with the right and obligation of competitors to exercise independent business judgment in pricing their products or services, dealing with their customers and suppliers, and selecting the markets in which to compete.

Hold harmless: By using this Community Forum each member agrees to abide by these rules and further agrees to hold WOEMA and any and all of its board members, officers, employees, or other representatives harmless from any liability for damages arising out of, or in connection with, the use of this Community Forum.

How to Utilize the Forum

  • Replying to the topic would add a new response to the topic list. Replies can include file attachments
  • Subscribing to a topic means that anytime a member replies to a specific post, anyone who has clicked "Subscribe" will receive an email with a link to the forum post. Members can view a list of My Subscribes, where they can quickly un-subscribe from any topics no longer relevant to them.
  • Favoriting a topic will add the topic to a member's My Favorites list. This list is available anytime under My Posts, and can act as a running list of topics a member is interested in revisiting later. Unlike "Subscribe," members won’t receive emails when they favorite a topic, so this is a less intrusive way of staying up to date on topics relevant to you.
