New Features: Special Interest and Regional Groups

New features are now available for the Special Interest and Regional Groups.  Make sure you sign up as a group member in order to make the most of the facilities including access to documents relating to your group events and group messaging facilities.

  • You can view the new Special Interest Groups and Regional Groups if you're logged into ACAT as a current full member.
  • If you're not already a group member you can apply to become one.
  • If the Group's Administrator approves your application you'll then be able to see the rest of the group information.
  • As a Group Member, once you're on the Group's page, you can read and contribute to the chatterbox which allows people to post messages to the group. Only Group Members can read and use this service.
  • You can also see a list of the forthcoming group events and download any group documents that have been made available to you.
  • The Group's Administrators can add in new group events (and amend existing ones). These events are published publicly on the website as well as being listed on the Group page for Group Members to see.
  • The Group Administrator is the gatekeeper for Group Membership and he or she is the one who allows people to join the group.
  • The Group Administrator can also upload documents to the Group page; Word files, Spreadsheets, PowerPoint and PDFs. Obviously the copyright on the documents needs to be considered and respected.
  • If you have any questions or need help with any aspect of the group sections then please let me know.
