Vendor/Practitioner Relations:

            Vendors are an integral part of Business Continuity and must be a part of this group if we are to provide the level of value to our members that we want.  Past experience has shown that if vendors use their presentation time to sell or advertise, practitioners will not remain an active part of the group.  Therefor vendors who use their presentation time for a sales pitch will be asked to leave the group.  Group mailing lists may not be used as a part of a vendor mailing.
