PWS Groups provide members with meeting places to discuss industry specific topics, areas of interest and more.
PWS members can join exising groups or start their own. To access Groups, hover over the Forum tab in the menu until the Groups submenu tab appears. Click on the tab to enter.
To create a Group, click Create a Group. Members must follow all the steps in order to establish a group. Once a member creates or joins a group, they will see their group(s) in their PWS member profile.
NOTE: Should you decide to create a Group, you may be asked if you'd like to create a Forum as well. Only select this option if you would like to open the discussion topic up to the entire member directory.
You may also choose to make the group public, private or hidden. To make the group searchable and open to all members, choose public. Choosing private will require a request for members to join. You must approve or deny members manually. If you select Hidden, the group will not be searchable or seen by Non-Group members.
One of the most exciting features on the new PWS site, the searchable members directory offers hundreds of contacts at the click of a button.
Members may conduct searches based on keywords and phrases such as name, organization, areas of interest, expertise and even previous experience.
This directory is based on the information provided by members' profiles. This is why we stress the importance of completing member profile fields. The data provided in those fields powers the members directory search tool.
To access the members directory, click the Find PWS Members tab in the menu. You may use the search bar to locate members or select members from the list below the search bar.
NOTE: To improve the community experience, please be sure to complete all the fields in your personal member profile.
