  • On the Groups landing page, in the ‘My Groups’ dropdown menu, select Active Groups

Being Active in Your Groups

Once you are a member of the group, you can pose questions to the group, share announcements and good news, or even add a file for other group members to access. The Groups are closed membership, so anything posted within the group, including discussions and files, are accessible to only that group’s members and are not searchable. You can also manage how frequently you will receive notifications of group activities. Your choices include: every post, daily, weekly, or limited (which will turn off email notifications).


Upcoming HERS program offerings are found in the Events tab in the top navigation. If you have navigated to Events by way of a link in an email, please ensure you have logged in to the HERS Network before completing your registration to ensure you receive the HERS Alumnae pricing.
