CoreNet Global Membership List:

Use it for professional networking ... not selling or mass marketing

Members have expressed concern over the growing frequency of email and direct mail solicitation from other members and industry professionals. Because the CoreNet Global membership list is considered a members-only benefit to enabling access to members and in the operation of the association, its use for mass marketing or other solicitations is not allowed.

The list, whether through the CoreNet Global Web site or other sources, is a membership resource only for professional networking and knowledge sharing, and is not offered for sale.

Examples of accepted use include contacting members for advice on solving a problem, doing the job better, customizing an approach to a global region or local market, sharing best practices, and seeking opinions or recommendations on vendors or alliance partners.

Members are welcome to access membership lists for association business or knowledge sharing at the Chapter level through their Chapter leadership and the respective Chapter Web sites that serve each local group. In addition, members have 24/7 password-protected access to individual membership listings at www.corenetglobal.org.

Members are encouraged to actively promote their products and services at the Corporate Real Estate Marketplace Exposition (Innovation Pavilion) held at CoreNet Global Summits.
