Thank you for joining the
(NEARLY) EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE AIRS NETWORKER.
In addition to the questions below, please refer to The Networker Instructions Document that uses screenshots and a video to show you how to navigate the Networker, and how your agency can add new staff to it.
Q: What is the AIRS Networker?
The AIRS Networker at http://airsnetworker.airs.org is a Web 2.0 application that allows AIRS members to work together in all manner of online communities and collaborations. It is a professional networking application and you are free to harness its power in any way that helps yourself and your organization. Overall the Networker has a multiplicity of advantages over the previous system, including the ability to create and expand searchable resource libraries, public and private discussion groups, blogs, searchable directories and private online communities.
Q: What are some primary benefits?
Q: How much does it cost?
The Networker is a benefit of being a member of AIRS so if you or your organization is a member then there's no additional charge.
Q: How many staff from my organization can participate?
As an AIRS member, all staff are eligible for a Networker account. There are no limits, so feel free to add as many staff as you would like. Each individual has their own login and profile.
Q: How do I join the AIRS Networker?
You need your own individual account. If you are the billing contact for your agency or if you are AIRS Certified, then you almost certainly already have an account. Go to http://airsnetworker.airs.org and click "Sign In" located on the top right hand side. Then click "Reset Password" ... and if you are on the system, you will be emailed your unique ID and password.
Q: What if that doesn’t work?
If you do not have an individual account, you will need to ask the billing contact for your organization (i.e. the person who receives emails from AIRS on membership renewals) to create one for you. Check out this video on how to add, delete or edit contacts.
Q: I have tried all the above but I am still experiencing problems (of whatever nature), what should I do?
