  1. What is a forum? A forum is an area where members of Connect can post "topics" or specific types of discussions. What is a sub-forum Some forums may contain other sub-forums to further break down a "type of discussion". What is a topic? A topic is a post someone makes in a forum or sub-forum.
  2. What are Clubs? Clubs are a closed section of Connect which only members of that club can see, view and post in. View clubs are a VIP area for specific groups of people to discuss privately what might be sensitive information or important specific topics related to that club. What features does a club have? Clubs have their own "sub-forums" where members can post topics in the same way they would on the more public forums and other members can reply to these topics. Clubs also have their own shared calendar managed by the club members, as well as their own dedicated download section where documents can be stored and shared. How do I join a club? Many clubs are set by the Institute, usually for an internal working group or official committee. Membership of the club is given automatically, provided you are a member of the working group or committee on our database. Can I request to join a club? In most cases the answer is no. If you should have access to a specific Club you will be given access by the owner of that working group or committee. You can see what groups/committees you are a member of in your MyLI dashboard. I am a member of X working group and I do not seem to have access to the club on Connect Sometimes when you first join a forum (from the first time you sign in) it can take up to an hour to automatically add you to that club. Try again later, but if you continue to not have access when you believe you should, please contact membership@landscapeinstitute.org who can field your query. Can I have my own club/request a new club? In most cases, no. Clubs have a specific use case and are set up directly on the LI's CRM system. If there is a specific topic you believe will generate a lot of useful discussion please reach out to a moderator or admin who will consider it as a separate forum. Email technical@landscapeinstitute.org. Can Clubs have guests? No.
