Keep the conversation going in the new ASA Community

We hope you agree that ANESTHESIOLOGY 2020 offered more ways to converse with more colleagues than any meeting before it. We’re pleased to inform you that you can extend those conversations, and much more, with our new ASA Community – an easy-to-use networking tool where you can tap into the collective knowledge of our 50,000-plus membership.

Since its launch three weeks ago, the ASA Community has amassed over 10,000 logins, more than 50,000 pages views, and over 500 member posts.

There is no lack of options when it comes to networking and communications platforms, but there are some notable things that make our secure, private community unique:

  • Scale and Reach. ASA Community is a very big tent. Via the Open Forum, every ASA member can tap into the collective knowledge and experience of 50,000 colleagues.
  • Ease of Use. Daily Digests deliver the latest community activity directly to members’ inboxes each morning, and members can reply to posts or start new threads – no log in required.
  • One-Stop Shop. Members are invited to post about any aspect of their practice – no need to hop from platform to platform to find the right “home” for certain questions.
  • Depth of Conversation. Unlike interest groups on social media platforms, ASA Community is designed for meaty conversation rather than quick-hit interaction. Reference materials can be posted as attachments and are automatically archived.
  • Quality and Trust. This community is reserved for ASA members only, and members’ full name and contact information is readily accessible via their profile pages. Each post or reply is a message that a member has literally “signed their name to,” which encourages higher-quality contributions and best behavior.
  • Visibility for Leadership. All of your contributions are accessible from your profile page, so you can easily build a track record as a subject matter expert or influencer – an opportunity to “get noticed” by ASA leadership as a potential speaker, panelist, or committee member.

Here’s what users are saying so far about the ASA Community:
