Thank you for being part of our online community ("CalDerm") - exclusive to CalDerm members. It was formed for the purpose of serving California board-certified dermatologists and the public through education, advocacy, and innovation.. A robust volunteer board of directors supports these activities and introduces new ideas and initiatives to the community.

To ensure the best possible experience for all members, some basic guidelines for participation in our new CalDerm website have been established. By joining and using the CalDerm website you agree that you have read and will follow these rules and guidelines.

Rule #1

Do not discuss, post, or comment on prices for products, services, jobs, or anything else -for those of your association, company, or any other organization. Associations have an important role in the marketplace and any discussion about pricing can cause potential trade restrictions, which should always be avoided.

Rule #2

Marketing and promotions of any product or service are not allowed. The purpose of the community is to share information and build relationships - not to sell or advertise. CalDerm has many other ways for its members to advertise services, market jobs, sell products, etc., which can be found under the Resources > Industry Partners section of the CalDerm.org navigation menu.
