  • The Moderation Review Committee is looking for volunteers!

    SIR Connect has continued to grow into a vital online community for SIR members, the SIR Operations Committee has taken steps to ensure the platform's integrity and adherence to our mission. Recently, SIR updated the SIR Connect Code of Conduct to provide clarity around the moderation process for posts and form a Moderation Review Committee to review all posts flagged for moderation.

    The Moderation Review Committee is comprised of the SIR Member Service Division Councilor and three members at-large. The SIR immediate past president serves as chair of the committee and shall convene the committee as necessary. The committee shall review all posts flagged for moderation within 48 business hours and determine if it violates the SIR Connect Code of Conduct.
