WIN is the Wharton Club of New Jersey's online community that lets you post non-solicitous messages on almost any topic you'd like.  All members of WCNJ, whether paid or non-paid, are free to join WIN.  And using it is as simple as sending your email question or request to a special WIN address (wcnj-win@yahoogroups.com).
 
I, personally, have benefited from tapping into the WIN community many times over the years.  Sample requests I have seen or posted include recommendations for services providers (lawyers, graphic artists, landscapers, etc.), job postings, college interns looking, venue suggestions for personal and business events, last minute sports/concert tickets for sale, examples of employee manuals and other policy documents, and seekers of fellow musicians, to name just a few.
 
Responses go only to the requestor, so you never get inundated with irrelevant messages.  I usually receive about 10-12 helpful responses every time I post. Sometimes, when others have asked, the requestor can compile all responses and distribute the results to fellow respondents. One caveat:  WIN follows WCNJ's community etiquette guidelines (see Community Etiquette Guidelines Article), so no posting solicitations for your business. For example, an accountant should not send a post advertising her wares and soliciting for tax clients. There are other WCNJ mechanisms for achieving this, like joining one of our county-based leads councils (see WCNJ's Special Interest Groups - SIGs Article).
 
WIN is an invaluable tool - and free with your WCNJ membership.  I highly recommend joining if you are not already on the WIN distribution list. Just send an email to wcnj-win@yahoogroups.com requesting that you be added...and start posting today!
