ANIA Open Forum

The ANIA Open Forum (formerly known as the ANIA E-List) is an online discussion group designed to help you connect with your friends and colleagues within ANIA. The Open Forum is part of ANIA Connect. The Open Forum fosters camaraderie and support among members. We encourage you to use the Open Forum to connect, share, and communicate with your colleagues!

Note: In March 2017, the "ANIA E-List" changed to the "Open Forum." All members were auto-subscribed to receive Open Forum communications in the form of a daily digest. Members will receive ONE email a day that includes the day’s discussions. These emails will NOT include any promotional materials, conference registration reminders, etc. The Open Forum daily digests are a summary of discussions that your colleagues are having in the Open Forum - only peer-generated content! Note - if you are already subscribed to the E-List, your current subscription preference will remain unchanged. However, if you would like to opt out of receiving a daily email digest, follow these steps:

  1. Go to ANIA Open Forum (you’ll be prompted to log in if you are not already).
  2. Click on “Settings” and select “No email” under “Email Notifications.”
