At the Angel Capital Association we value relationships.  Relationships are built upon a foundation of trust, respect, sincerity, and credibility that comes from outreach from one individual to another. It is not built upon mass marketing of your wants, needs, or desires to all or a large segment of attendees.  We ask all Summit participants to respect this critical component of our culture.  Historical trends shows us that the most successful relationship builders within ACA are those that respect these paradigms and personally reach out, in an intentional and respectful manner, to those who may have a common interest or need. Every Summit attendee is a thought leader in their own right relative to their role in the Startup Ecosystem.  Take time to get to know your colleagues and understand their role and the value they provide.  We know this to be the secret sauce that will allow the right relationships to flourish at the right times.

Discussion Guidelines

We can’t wait to engage with you at ACA 2021 – The Summit of Angel Investing!  To ensure a positive experience for all Summit attendees, ACA has compiled some rules of online discussion etiquette to help make the individual postings easier to follow, keep the conversation thread focused and most importantly, fun for everyone to participate!

ACA encourages all attendees to treat your fellow Summit goers with the same respect and etiquette you would use in a face-to-face setting.  

Please follow these discussion guidelines as you engage with your colleagues, speakers and sponsors. 

ACA Ground Rules for Online Discussions

Participate: This is a shared learning environment and each attendee has their own unique experiences to share. Don’t hesitate to join in the conversation, ask questions and learn from your peers! 

Report Glitches: Discussion forums are electronic. They break. If for any reason you experience difficulty participating, please inform ACA of the issue by contacting Heather Krejci.

Help Others: You may have more experience with online discussion forums than the person next to you. Give them a hand. Show them it’s not so hard. They’re really going to appreciate it!

Be Patient: Read everything in the discussion thread before replying. This will help you avoid repeating something someone else has already contributed. Acknowledge the points made with which you agree and suggest alternatives for those with which you don’t.

Be Brief: You want to be clear—and to articulate your point—without being preachy or offensive. Be direct.

Respect Diversity: It’s an ethnically rich and diverse, multi-cultural world in which we live. Use no language that is—or that could be construed to be—offensive toward others. Racists, sexist, and heterosexist comments and jokes are unacceptable, as are derogatory and/or sarcastic comments and jokes directed at religious beliefs, disabilities, and age.

No YELLING!  Using bold upper-case letters is bad form, it can be received as yelling at somebody (NOT TO MENTION BEING HARD ON THE EYE).

No Flaming! Criticism must be constructive, well-meaning, and well-articulated. Rants directed at any other contributor are simply unacceptable and will not be tolerated. The same goes for profanity. 

Lastly, Remember: You Can't Un-Ring the Bell. Language is your only tool in an online environment. Be mindful. How others perceive you will be largely—as always—up to you. Once you’ve hit the send button, you've rung the bell.

ACA has worked to create an inclusive environment for all attendees that encourages learning, growth, communication and relationship-building.  We have the fullest confidence that all ACA 2021 – The Summit of Angel Investing attendees will respect the thoughts and opinions of others.  If you have any questions, please contact us!
