Questions?

 

1. How do I sign up for the first time?

Go to http://network.nabenet.org. In the top right corner, you will see a button that says Sign In (have your NABE username and password ready). 

Once signed in, go to the top right and complete your profile. Here, you can upload your picture, add a short bio and adjust your email settings if you choose (further explained in Question 3). Simply go to Community Notifications under the My Account tab.

2. Do I have to sign in every time?

You only need to sign in if you want to upload a library file or post a blog entry or event. You can start a discussion/post a new message through email and you can respond to all discussion threads from your email, either to the entire community or just the sender. 

3. What are my choices for how I receive or view messages?

The default setting for each community is to receive messages in Real Time. Please see question #1 for how to change message settings. Descriptions for setting choices are listed below:

  • Real Time: you will receive messages live as you would from an email discussion list.
  • Daily Digest: you will receive one email per community with a list of the discussion threads from each day; it is mailed after 12:00 a.m.
  • Plain Text: If you prefer the original discussion list text.
  • No email:  If you prefer to sign in and check or search threads at your convenience. 

4. Will I need to set up a signature block or enter my name and other information each time I post a message?

No, your signature is taken directly from your Higher Logic member profile. You may edit it to include additional information.  

5. Is there an email address for each community?

Yes. To locate the email address for each community, make sure you are logged into your NABE membership account. On your membership profile home page, use the My Profile right navigation menu to click on Groups and select from the group options listed. The email address for each community group will be displayed at the top of the community group’s homepage.

6. If I was participating on a former NABE discussion list, have I been automatically added to the community that replaced it?

Yes. If you were a NABE member in the FY18-19, you have been automatically added to communities which replaced the former discussion lists you were previously on, or requested to be on. You can view your communities on the NABEnetwork page by selecting Communities and then My Communities from the drop-down navigation menu.

 

7. How do I join the new communities open to all NABE members?

Navigate to https://www.nabenet.org/members/group_select.asp. Use the My Profile right navigation menu to the right to click on Groups and select from the community groups options listed. Select the community you would like to join by clicking on the community and selecting join group. 

8. How do I join the communities that have restricted access?

For some communities there are additional requirements for access. To request access, please contact Emma Buell at emma.buell@americanbar.org or Nora Warens at nora.warens@americanbar.org.


9. How do I join the committee on... communities?

Please note that access to Committee communities will be provided in June. Committee communities are for appointed members of NABE Committee only. To request interest in participating on a Committee, please login to your membership account and use the My Profile right navigation menu to the right to click on Groups and select from the community committee options listed. Select the committee you would like to join by clicking on the community and selecting join group (see images for Question 7). 

10. I have a suggestion for a new community/group. Where do I submit this request?

Please follow this link to complete this form. Suggestions for new communities will be reviewed by the NABE leadership.
