EDGES GROUP, INC EDGES GROUP, INC WHAT IS ITS PURPOSE? Its purpose is to enhance, through UNDERSTANDINGS, the knowledge of each individual member withing the Group. It is not to be used as a political vehicle for self-elevation. It is a "forum" where we can openly discuss, confidentially or otherwise, areas of great concern with hopes of enlightening each other in ways of working to insure that industry performs properly. This approach might enable members of the Group to mutually share experiences and/or information and knowledge otherwise unavailable to them. WHAT IS ITS GOAL?
