BEAconnect is a new social media component to BEAweb.org. Below we have some information of some of the key components. If you have any questions or issues please contact J-D Boyle.
In PROFILE you can post pictures, resources, and contact information for others to view. Since your record is connected to BEA's membership database, there is no need to duplicate information. In addition, anything you update in your PROFILE will automatically update our membership database.
Interest Divisions, Geographic Districts, the Annual Convention…. are examples of GROUPS made and open for you to join and be part of the exchange. If you need a new panelist for BEA2013 post it here (you can even check out the qualifications of the perspective panelist). Now BEA2012 is over this is also a great way to continue the dialog for the next convention.
Have you ever wished you could easily share research you presented at the annual convention? Or needed to borrow a lesson plan for your sports production class? In the RESOURCES section of BEAconnect, you can. Members can post any data or information you want to share with the entire BEA community. Post files, links, or even create a live-doc.
BEA connect also allows Institutional and Corporate Members to create their own pages. ORGANIZATIONS can
announce upcoming seminars they are hosting or awards they received and share those with the BEA community.
Just like the MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY at BEAweb.org but… better!! This robust directory will let you search by terms or keywords located in member profiles. Looking for a member whose name you forgot but remember that he worked on the festival last year and likes sports, oh look there is Ken Fischer.
