There have been many discussions about getting new members to join, but I do not remember seeing this topic discussed so here it goes.
You have a person who is interested in joining your company and has been hanging around for a while. From the get go you know that person has a hand that only has approximately 50% functionability due to a medical condition. As time progresses you also come to learn that the person has a past history of seizures that are controlled by meds. Do you let him continue to hangout and apply and let things take their natural course or does someone have a talk with him to seriously reconsider joining? Please share your thoughts/ opinions on this topic. Keep in mind that the "American with Disabilities Act" has also been brought into the conversation by the members and not the potential applicant as something that also will/ would need to be addressed.FTM-PTB-EGH-RFB-DTRT-KTF-DPT

JMO... i would let your medical company certify or disqualify the individual....
You could have serious issues with HIPPA if you discuss medical issues or the disibilities act if you personally deny an person to membership prior to a physical.Be part of the solution... not part of the problem
