LinkedIn has a beta feature called "Company Profile". This facilitates building out a company profile with some similarity to a personal profile. If you find a company or organization name on LinkedIn, even your own, that doesn't have an official profile it may already be hyperlinked to a page that is somewhat pre-populated based on the personal profiles of that company's employees.
Only company employees with an email address at the company domain can complete the profile. I brought this to the attention of one of my association clients and prompted them to complete their profile. After all, it is complimentary and undoubtedly a good community building strategy. Not having a presence probably says more about an organization than having one.
The response I got was quite interesting, similar to my last post about opening a Twitter account, but not the same organization. Here is the response, verbatim but with names removed  to protect the innocent:
First I think [legal counsel] needs to have a chat with some
of our younger (translate: younger than any of us) [members] to make certain we really
understand the issues so that we don't open [association] to liability or worse, end up
weakening our intellectual properties. [They] may come back to sound the "all clear" but I have a
suspicion there's more to it than first meets the eye.
So it is not surprising that I couldn't find this person on LinkedIn.
