The community site will be your go-to place to stay in the loop with all things NSPE. It is an exclusive members-only networking tool designed to help you connect with thousands of association members.
You can ask advice, share expertise, connect with other members and even share large files without cluttering your inbox.
You already have a profile set up and are automatically subscribed to the main discussion group, the Open Forum. Now it’s time to login, update your profile and start making connections!
Log in using your e-mail address and password. Your login credentials are the same that you use to log in to the NSPE website.
Note: When you log in for the first time, please be sure to read over the E-Group Rules and click on the ‘I Accept’ box at the bottom of the E-Group Rules & Etiquette page. You will need to accept these rules before continuing to the community site.

Building Your Contact List
A great benefit of the community site is the searchable member directory (available to members sometime in 2017.) Connect with friends, colleagues and fellow members that you met at past NSPE events.
You can access and search the directory from the blue navigation bar under the ‘Directory’ tab or from your profile under the ‘My Connections’ tab.
You can control whether or not your name appears in the
directory or community rosters. To opt-out of being included in the member directory and
community rosters, or opt-in, visit your profile page and click on the
"My Account" > "Privacy Settings" > and adjust your settings.
Review Your E-mail Settings
All members are auto-subscribed to the Open Forum and you will start to receive e-mails containing new discussion posts as members start participating. To update your e-mail preferences, visit the “Settings” page under the “My Profile” tab in the menu bar. You can choose from the following options:
- Real Time: You will receive an e-mail each time a new message is posted;
- Daily Digest: You will receive one e-mail each day containing all of the previous day’s messages; and,
- No E-mail: This means that you won’t receive any e-mails in your inbox. You will need to log in to the community site to view and reply to discussion posts
