aaspConnect is the name of our new online community that will give subscribers the power to communicate more dynamically in a more user-friendly platform, access documents and past email conversations, network with other colleagues on a more personal level, and much more!
aaspConnect will be hosted on a platform called Higher Logic. Higher Logic has launched thousands of communities across a multitude of nonprofits and is the industry leader in online community management. To learn more about Higher Logic, please click here.
The FundSvcs listserv platform was previously hosted by an email list hosting service called L-Soft. The search engine was powered by a separate platform called Swiftype. On September 23, 2019, we fully transitioned to the new aaspConnect platform in Higher Logic which includes listserv and search engine functionality.
In aaspConnect, the messaging/emailing listserv functionality is known as "discussions." Each community has its own discussion thread so you can mass message joined members, upload files, and view the member list. You also have the autonomy to dictate your email settings and decide how you want to interact within the community – online or just via email. aaspConnect works like a social media feed or a listserv depending on your personal preference!
There will be several different types of communities set up:
aaspConnect will contain important member documents in order to centralize resources and enhance searchability. Those libraries include the following:
aaspConnect will link experienced mentors and ambitious mentees to share resources and experiences, tackle professional challenges, and work together to achieve professional and personal goals. aasp members can sign up and create profiles based on their interests. This program will be available shortly after the aaspConnect launch this fall. Stay tuned for more details!
