An E-mail List...Almost Like an Ongoing Conference!Where can you post a question and soon get answers from all over the country (and world)? On an e-mail list! When you join APHE, you will be added to our e-mail listserv.
If you are new to e-mail listservs, what happens is that you receive a copy of any e-mail message that anyone else on the list sends to the list address. Likewise, any e-mail message that you send to the list address will go to EVERYONE on the list. Suddenly you are in instant communication with your peers!
Voting PowerMembers have a strong voice in helping to shape the future of APHE.
Conference InvitesAPHE has a National Humane Education Conference, with a format that has been perfected over the past three decades, including the Sharing Corral, APHE's unique chance for everyone to be a presenter! This is a great forum for sharing your programs and materials with your peers.
Networking OpportunitiesPerhaps the greatest benefit of membership is the chance to network with leaders in the field and to be supported by your peers. One of the best networking tools is the E-mail List.
