Take Your Knowledge to New Heights

Twitter Chat

Take part in our first-ever RIMS ’14 Twitter chat!

Join us for this live conversation on Thursday, March 20th at 1:00pm – 1:30pm ET.
TOPIC: How Will the Legalization of Marijuana Affect Your Employment Polices? 

Our guest moderator and RIMS ’14 panelist, Vance O. Knapp, partner in the Labor and Employment Law Department at Sherman & Howard, L.L.C. in Denver, Colorado will answer our questions live on Twitter. And, you can ask questions or comment using the hashtag #RIMS14Chat.

What’s a Twitter Chat?
A Twitter chat is simply a group of people tweeting about the same topic using a specific hashtag (#) that allows it to be followed on Twitter. 

How Does It Work?
The way it works is that everyone taking part in the chat uses a certain keyword (called a hashtag) in all their tweets. We will use hashtag #RIMS14Chat. Everyone taking part in the chat follows the conversation by following that hashtag.

We’ll pose four questions for our guest moderator to answer as well as take questions from those following the chat. We’ll begin the questions with Q1, Q2, etc. and will devote about 5 minutes per question, depending on participation.

Be sure to refresh your Twitter feed to view the most current #RIMS14Chat tweets. Or, you can also use a Twitter chat tool (such as TweetChat or TweetDeck) to follow the conversation.

How Can You Participate?

  • Create your personal account on Twitter, if you haven’t already done so

  • Enter the hastag #RIMS14Chat into the Search field in the upper right corner of the Twitter page (it may appear as a “magnifying glass” icon if you’re on a mobile device)

  • Follow the conversation (questions and comments)

  • Join in the conversation by beginning your comment with the question’s corresponding number (e.g., when commenting on question Q1, begin your response with Q1)

  • End your comment with the hashtag #RIMS14Chat, so everyone participating
    will see it.

Why Should You Chat with Us?
Taking part in RIMS ‘14 Chat will connect you with other risk professionals and help you to learn more about this topic before you attend our Annual Conference in Denver next month. We hope you’ll come away with new ideas and new connections.
