Thanks, Ron. 

I think for now I won't respond. I don't like that there isn't more info about their site. They have to be making money somehow... maybe by selling the information of people who sign up (just a guess)? If someone wants to refer people to me (this is what the email said - a form letter), they can refer people without my belonging to the site. I'm not a big fan of LinkedIn but it seems to be the norm, and so I keep an abbreviated profile posted there. 

Thanks for your thoughts on this.

Karen,
I have received a number of requests from "local" people, that I only know from Linked-in, so I just assumed it was a Linked-in thing... But I don't know.
I accepted the request from the 2nd person, and BAM! I was expected to attend a meet and greet reception the very next day in the middle of the afternoon, and they wanted to link to my website, which is not ready for public viewing, and a couple other things that really turned me off... I kind of got a little anxious about the whole deal.
Now, If I had been ready for the public, the influx of attention would have probably been welcomed.
But as it was, I have just ignored the requests that have come my way since...
Your results may vary...
Good Luck!

Is anyone familiar with a service called align.com? Someone has “invited” me to be on their referral list. There are no charges (which is odd, as there is also no advertising, so I wonder how the site makes money)… perhaps they plan to charge in the future. It seems to be a networking site for small businesses, a way to refer people to other businesses.

Just wondering as this is new to me…
