LinkedIn Discussion Group – Policy, Guidelines, and Terms of Use

Over the years, the Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs (PSAB) has worked to help you stay connected with other borough elected officials, secretaries, managers, and other employees throughout the state.

Technology has changed over the years, and so has our association. That;s why PSAB transitioned to LinkedIn. Click here to watch a webinar for tips on how to use LinkedIn.

Signing up for LinkedIn is free and easy. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up at www.linkedin.com. Once you have created your account, you can join the “PSAB – Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs” group. You can also access the group directly here. Note: If your title and place of employment is NOT listed in your LinkedIn profile, please include it in the message request.

You will be asked to review and agree to the policy before being accepted into the group. Please also remember that PSAB cannot provide legal advice. Your borough solicitor should still be consulted for legal opinions.

Please note that you must have an email address to sign up. Don’t have an email address? You can obtain a free account through Hotmail, Google, or Yahoo or your third-party Internet provider. 

Please be sure to read PSAB's Policy, Guidelines, and Terms of Use below. By joining the groups, you agree to adhere to the terms of use.
