Access Forum

You may access forums one of two ways, either from the committee/section homepage or the section forums link under "Practice Tools”

If accessing from the committee/section homepage please use the button on the right side of the page. If accessing from the section forums link you will be taken directly to the forum of your choice.



Post New Topic

Once you have a forum open you post by selecting the button as highlighted below.

Then complete the subject line and type your question, scenario or comments in the space provided. You may also attach a video or files to your post for others to review. Once your post is complete, simply submit and your post will be shared with all other members of the section.


Respond to Prior Post

Once you have a forum open, select the topic you wish to comment on and select the button.

 


Subscribe to Instant Update

By default all section members are automatically signed up to receive email confirmations (Subscribe to Instant Update) when new posts are made to forums of those sections they belong to. This functionality allows the forums to work much like the list serves by sending an email (see sample email below) notifying section members of the post each time a post or response is received. The difference with forums is that to provide comments you must visit the forum to post. If you are not receiving these email notifications you simply open the forum in question and select the button. If you do not see the button and only see the button you are already subscribed and no further action is needed.

Sample email


Subscribe to Digest

The forum digest mode allows those section members who are not as active to receive a daily email (see example below) summarizing the forum’s activities for the day, rather than receive an email for each and every post. To subscribe to the digest mode use the button. If you do not see the button and only see the button you are already subscribed and no further action is needed

 

Sample Digest Email



Unsubscribe from Instant Post

If you are receiving email notifications and you wish to discontinue this service, please open the forum in question and select the button. If you do not see the button and only see the button, you are not subscribed to this service and no further action is needed.


Unsubscribe from Digest

If you are receiving daily email notifications and you wish to discontinue this service, please open the forum in question and select the button. If you do not see the button and only see the button, you are not subscribed to this service and no further action is needed.

 


Search Forums

Because the forums are archived, you can search forums by using the  field from any page within our site.  Any search performed will search all pages of the ISBA website as well as all forums you are a member of, increasing the likelihood of receiving your desired results. (See search example below)
