United States: Ice Rink Professionals Facebook Group
Ice Rink Professionals Facebook group ANNOUNCEMENT: Many of you have invited your industry friends to join this group, which is great! However, they will not be formally admitted into the group unless they accept that invitation. When you invite them, they go into “preview” mode, where they receive one reminder to join (from us), and are then deleted if they don’t accept. To make sure your friends don’t get deleted, drop them a note when you invite them into the group, and let them know that they’ll need to accept the invitation if they want to join.
