What is a Forum?
RPI Forums are a communication tool to ask industry related questions and share information. Forum discussions are archived and therefore a great resource to check when seeking information. RPI has several Forums on different industry topics and there are also Forums available within Groups that you may be a member of. You can access the RPI Forums from the Member Central section, then selecting Forums.
If you are a member of a Group, for example Committees & Boards: Board of Directors, you may also join Group Forums which are open and accessible only to members of the Group.
