AARConnect is Your Social Networking Hub for RTs

 Updated: December 22, 2016

More akin to LinkedIn than Facebook, AARConnect is a social network for AARC members only. Look up old colleagues, participate in discussions, and find members of common interests. AARConnect allows you to connect with people from across the country and around the world. Ask questions and get input on our Help Line. Talk about common interests on the discussion lists of a Specialty Section if you are a member of one of these groups. Or join Roundtables, which are open to all members of AARC.

There’s no better time to get hooked–as AARC has freshened up the look of AARConnect,  and has made it more useful for the ways in which we find our members using the site.

Here are the features you can expect in our update:

  • A fresh, bright screen with less clutter on the front page.
  • New functionality in the emails you receive from the site, that allows you to respond directly through email.
  • A web design that adapts to whatever device you’re reading from — a computer, a phone, a tablet.
  • A cleaner profile page, with more features expected in weeks to come that allow you to showcase your involvement with the AARC and AARConnect.

Plus, all members are automatically subscribed to the Help Line, which is a great tool for asking and answering questions about clinical and professional issues. You can always read it online, but we suggest that you change your setting to “real time” or “daily digest” so that you get the conversations delivered right to your email. You control the settings for emails and your profile page by logging in with your AARC member number and password.

While you’re there, be sure to explore AARConnect’s 10 Specialty Sections, where you can participate in the robust discussions occurring on their discussion lists. Join a Section and get more involved if you’d like to be in on that action!

Any way you cut it, AARConnect is a great way to get involved and get networked with members across the country and around the world who can help you grow your career and be a better respiratory therapist.
