This is to inform you that I started a new group on LinkedIn: Marriott Silver and Gold Members. The group is meant to be complementary to the rewards insiders and is for all LinkedIn members who are Marriott Silver or Gold member (note: for Platinum members a different group exists).
The primary purpose of the new group is for Silver and Gold members to stay connected using the advantages of the LinkedIn system - now and in the future (which distinguishes it from the Rewards Insiders). Furthermore, the secondary purpose of the group is to form an online community and to share travel insights, Marriott news, specific hotel information, and simply to be knowledge base.
Best regards all, Gerard
PS. I came up with this idea laying on my back at the Mexican beach at the JW MArriott Resort and Spa, Cancun, Mexico.
