AHEAD is Closing Down Most Listservs – Please Join Our Online Communities!

By AHEAD posted 04-09-2018 02:28:29 PM


AHEAD is transitioning away from most of its listservs, having recently implemented online community-based member engagement tools within its newly-designed website. The online communities offer a much more robust way to network with others and share resources. A complete list of the listservs scheduled to be discontinued Wednesday, April 18 at 3 p.m. Eastern is below.


AHEAD currently has 22 Communities located on its website. Many that will directly replace the listservs being shut down.  As an AHEAD member, you are welcome to join any of the new Communities.  If you would like AHEAD to establish a new Community to replace a listserv, please send your request to Jeremy Jarrell, AHEAD's Director of Innovation & Development, by email at jeremy@ahead.org

If this is your first time using the AHEAD Communities or your first time visiting the new www.ahead.org please review the following information to get started.

Signing into the new AHEAD website – Select Sign In at the top right of AHEAD's website: www.ahead.org and enter your username (typically your AHEAD member-associated email address) and your AHEAD password.
