To access the Community, sign in to the CASE website and select Manage Profile.
The CASE website has its own online messaging system. You can send and receive messages to/from other CASE members and Groups of which you are a member. You can edit your Messaging settings in Preferences. From the Manage Profile page, click on Messaging to navigate to the Message Center where you can view your Inbox and Sent Messages, Create a New Folder, or Message a Member or Connection.
There are several CASE Groups of which you may be a member. If you are a member of a CASE Department, a CASE Committee or the Board of Directors, you're a member of a Group. You will have access to the Group Member Directory, files, photos, calendars, Group Forum, Blogs and other features within the Group. Within the Groups page, you may click on the wrench icon under Actions to display a menu of actions, including messaging, emailing, unsubscribing from newsletters, leaving a group, or managing a group.

Connections are similar to LinkedIn where you can create a circle of CASE members with whom you would like to share, email and network. Manage your connections by assigning them to categories, link quickly to their profiles by clicking on them, or remove them from your list by deleting them.

If you would like to follow another member's blog or receive notifications on comments received on your own Blogs, you need to Subscribe to the Blog. Just select the Blog that you'd like to Subscribe to and click the icon at the top of the Blog that says Subscribe.
Once you are Subscribed, you can determine if you'd like to receive notifications on new comments and activity in the Blog. As a subscriber, you will receive email notification of any activity, including each new post. You may choose to be notified of new comments as well by clicking on the red conversation bubble in the options column. Conversely, clicking on a green conversation bubble will stop notifications generated by comments. Clicking on the red circle with an X on it will "unsubscribe” you from that blog altogether.
You can modify your Subscriptions to Blogs anytime by selecting the Manage Subscriptions link found at the top of your Blogs. You can easily Unsubscribe from a Blog at the top of the Blog as well.
