What is a Forum?
ASPR Forums are a communication tool to ask industry related questions and share information. Forum discussions are archived and therefore a great resource to check when seeking information. ASPR 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 the ASPR Forums from the Members Only section, then selecting Resources and Forums.
How Do I Subscribe to a Forum?
Go to the Forum that you'd like to join (in Resources 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 Marketing/Sourcing, Screening, Interview Process, and Other are all individual Forums under the Recruitment Process heading.
