I'm a member of an ASPPH Section that's not listed on the "My Groups" page — does ASPPH have me tagged correctly to each of my groups?
Since ASPPH Online Community is a new enhancement as of Spring 2019, onboarding of ASPPH networking and professional development groups to the platform is not complete. If you don't see a particular group listed on your "My Groups" page, that group may not yet be fully onboarded. For questions about access to specific Online Community groups, please use the Contact Us form on our Support page.
