WELCOME NON MEMBERS !!

Not sure how the forum registration and participant classifications are handled, if any.

Maybe the non-BICSI members are really quasi members if they are employed by "BICSI Corporate Memberships".

As with Adrian, I would bet Fluke Networks is a corporate member and Fluke has dozens of individual members.  Bob Jensen and Hugo Draye are certainly more than just BISCI members (both are current Harry J Pfister Award Holders and active members of about every standards body commitee related to our industry here in the US).  If so, does that make Adrian a corporate member by default?

Maybe some forum profile classifications can be incorporated that automatically displayed near the avatar , such as the way BICSI Staff do:

Here's a few that come to mind:

Member
Honary Member
Corporate Member
Prestige Member (contractor, consultant, manufacturer)
Guest Forum Member
Past President
Committee Member
Board Member,
Master Instructor
5 year Member, 10 year, 15 year, 20 year, Life Member, . .
- location where the member is located (BICSI region)
Pfister Award Holder
Emeritus  . . . . . . .

maybe other affiliations TIA, NFPA, CSI, AIA, NECA Member
maybe BISCI credentials/certificates
maybe other non BICSI credentials and licenses  (PE, licensed electrician/state, CDT, PMP, LEED . . . . . . )

- seems this would be a tad better than member & anonymous?

Just look at the ribbons on the conference lanyards for ideas.  BISCI membership classifies us this way already - just keep it consistant

Thoughts and comments welcome.

The term "PROFESSIONAL" gets my blood boiling!!  It tossed around like some kind of magic bean!

Just what is a "Professional": Expert, Specialized, Qualified, Proficient, Skilled, Trained, Practiced, Certified, Licensed. 

I can't find any where that it says anyone has to be "BICSI" to fall under "Professional", lets see.  I'm a BICSI member in good standing but not an RCDD.  Qualified, been doing this by the ANSI Standards for 30 odd years.  Expert, have been or are certified through (not certifiate of completion, certificate with number) Secior, Sony, 3M, Hitachi, Ortronics, Nortel . . . Hold / held licences from NEC, FCC, NFPA, FAA, NREMT . . . Published in ANSI, IEEE, NFPA, NEC . . .

The point is that anyone can be a Professional at his job, a test doesn't make you a professional, it shows you can take tests.  What makes you a Professional is how well you do your job, treating everyone with respect, give them as much for their dollar as possible.  In short to quote my parents, "Treat everyone just as you would like them to treat you, then add a smile and a thank you."  Of course it's all trash if you don't truly mean it.

I do plan on getting my RCDD in the near future, but still will not post it as if it is some kind of miracle fix all, it's value is only a good as the person displaying the RCDD.

Todd,

What a great idea!  If these "Badges" were place there it would definitely get members looking at profiles.
