I decided to create that post to help every association (like EPWN) which wonders how useful it is to create a group on Linkedin.
As far as I am concerned, Linkedin is the best website for business networking. Linkedin provides a "must have" group feature. Let me further explain the concept.
Linkedin for Groups: key benefits
Please find below a list of the key benefits as far as I am concerned.
* It helps increase the visibility of your alumni association/group/company.
-> Your logo will appear on the Group Directory
-> Your logo will appear on every member's profile
* It helps create value for your members
-> You can urge people to register on Linkedin, increase their visibility, and create opportunities
-> Your members will try online networking, expand their network, and increase the value for the whole group
* It helps facilitate a better communication within members
-> The group Manager can easily send a message to its members
-> Your members benefits from very good browsing features
Groups -> interface & features
I thought it would be a good idea to give you an idea of what a group look like, from the point of view of a member. For my example, I used my membership to the Centrale Alumni group. I would like to salute this excellent initiative from the Centraliens!

Where to find more info on Linkedin for Groups?
They don't really advertise that feature anymore. Linkedin usually doesn't advertise its services, everything works by efficient word and mouth!
The easiest way to access the Groups main page is to click on Linkedin -> Linkedin for Groups
