What is a Forum?
AHRD Conversations is a open discussion board – where we reach out to one another to start dialogues, share news, seek advice, find partners, and simply spend cyber-time with friends. Forum discussions are archived and therefore a great resource to check when seeking information. AHRD has several Forums on different industry topics and there are also Forums available within Groups that you may be a member of. You can access Conversations from the Members Only section, then selecting Conversation Discussion Group.
How Do I Subscribe to a Forum?
Go to the Forum that you'd like to join (in the Members Only section) or in the appropriate Group. Select which Forum you'd like to join. Each topic under each heading is an individual Forum. In the example below, you can see that Off the Record, Questions and Comments, Conference Central, and Technology are all individual Forums under the Water Cooler heading.
