What to Post

  • Questions and requests for help –As a member, use the forum to ask questions, seek advice on communications matters, look for referrals to tools or partners.
  • Answers to questions & industry tips – find a great tool or know how to solve someone’s posted challenge? Answer away!
  • Share job opportunities – We prefer you submit these to the WCA job bank ( and projects to Freelance Austin’s project bank ( but in a pinch the forum works too!
  • Share events – Post details for events that you think will be of interest, preferably that you’re involved with or planning to attend. Invite others to participate with you (bonus points if you have a discount code!).

What NOT to Post

  • Your sales pitch – Slack is not meant to be used for solicitation purposes, nor do we want our members to feel spammed. Content should be for the benefit of the group.
  • Spam – Be cognizant of how often you are posting message. Ask yourself: “Will this information be useful to other WCA members?” If not, don’t send it.
  • Political and religious topics – The forum is intended to uplift and support our members and is not a place for debates. Please honor this request in your postings.
