The ROCK Wall is a tool for members to make REQUESTS, share OPPORTUNITIES, post CLASSIFIEDS, assist their KIDS, ask for favors, make announcements, and let others know about the poster’s participation in NON-PROFIT/CHARITABLE causes.

The ROCK Wall is designed for our members to help each other!  You may reply to any post by using your own email (for privacy) or you may reply directly through the post.  If you use the latter, your post will be shared with everyone. This is a great opportunity to refer a fellow member and get their name in circulation!

Opportunities:

OPPORTUNITIES is for posting immediate business need(s) or key introduction(s): B2B, B2C, opportunities, & client needs.

Things You Should Know/Thought Leadership

This forum is for posting information that is of interest/relevant to our members.  This is NOT a place to solicit services or advertise.  Before posting here, ask yourself if the information is timely, relevant, and important for the membership to know about.  IE- An article on your firm and how it is offering a discount on tax preparation services is a solicit vs. How FACTA may impact your clients.  We suggest you "Subscribe to digest".
