Community Support Forums:

AFP has two community support forums for chapter admins to utilize as you work to build out your new websites. See below for more information on each, and be sure to join and take advantage of the advice and expertise all around you!

The Higher Logic User Group (or HUG) helps clients get the most out of their online community by providing a support network where you can connect with other Higher Logic experts, customers and partners through interactive blogs, forums and discussions. Post your questions, and crowd-sourcing will provide the answers! HUG also has an extensive library of materials, examples and other items to help you develop and expand your site’s capabilities. HUG membership also provides access to live and recorded instructional webinars to build your understanding of the Higher Logic platform. All chapter admins responsible for their Higher Logic site will be provided access to HUG.

To receive an invite to join HUG: Please click here to request an account (be sure to put down your AFP chapter name to receive approval).

We have created an AFP Chapter Website Program Community on AFP Connect where we will post important information and helpful documents. We hope you will join this community and use it to discuss your new websites, ask questions of your fellow admins, post helpful documents, and more.
