GSA’S CONNECTED COMMUNITY
GSA launched its new Connected Community for members and friends this year. GSA’s Connected Community empowers Annual Meeting attendees to easily interact and stay connected before, during, and after the Annual Meeting. Your meeting registration automatically makes you a part of this group.
With the Connected Community you can:
- Search and connect with other attendees you meet so that you can stay in touch;
- Organize meet-ups and activities;
- Join in discussions and keep topical conversations going beyond the meeting;
- Join groups of like-minded people who want to work together to improve and innovate;
- Post your presentations, pictures, documents, videos, or other content that you feel will help other participants in the GSA Community;
- And More …
We encourage you to activate your profile and upload a picture now so others can connect with you as the registration list grows. During the Annual Meeting, please stop by and say hello at the Connected Community booth in the GSA Headquarters area of the Exhibit Hall. There you can have your profile photo taken (if you still need one by then), and receive one-on-one instruction on how to get the most out of this new member benefit. As an extra incentive for activating your profile and uploading a photo, we'll be hosting a daily drawing during the Annual Meeting for a US$125 Visa gift card.
If you are logging in to GSA’s Connected Community for the first time, please follow the online instructions on how to log in.
