What You Need to Know About the New Community Platform
This year, the NCBA has switched to a new online community platform. This new community platform for Sections, Divisions and Councils offers many more features than the previous system. Below is a summary of the basics and what you need to know to utilize this platform and its features.
You can easily change your preferences to “real time” or “daily digest” by navigating to your profile icon in the top right of your communities home page and clicking Profile > My Account Tab > Community Notifications > Notification Settings. You can also change your contact information and profile picture under the profile tab.
My Communities consists of the Sections, Divisions and Councils you are a member of.
Community Home reflects the most recent discussions, upcoming events, as well as any new announcements for the community.
Discussions allow you to send a message through your email (Outlook, Gmail, etc.) by using the email address listed at the top of your community’s home page (i.e., Family Law or Family Law Council) under “Discussion Email Address.” You can also post or reply to a message directly through the community platform. Discussions also allow you to view discussion threads and search for previous messages sent.
Library provides access to all Section, Division and Council resources. For the Section/Division, this includes bylaws, resource links, forms, publications, etc. For the Council, this includes minutes and meeting packets.
