Welcome to A.R.E. Connect
Welcome to A.R.E. Connect - the new social media network for members of the association and retailers. The A.R.E. Connect tool not only allows you to link your comprehensive member profile with other association members and retailers - giving you the power to increase the efficacy of your network, but also quickly gather the information and resources you need.
At a glance, you can view past attended events and connect with other attendees, or see who is registered to effectively plan meetings and identify potential new contacts. Plus, the more you participate in A.R.E. Connect, the more public recognition you'll receive.
How to Use A.R.E.Connect & eGroups
