    If you attended the National Home Performance Conference, it's likely you met a lot of great people you'll want to keep in touch with. Fortunately, staying connected is easy. Here's how to Add Someone as a Contact on BPA Connections:

    1. Search for them in the Directory.
         2.  Go to their profile and click the Add as Contact button.

     Adding someone as a Contact is not instantaneous. Clicking the ADD AS CONTACT button sends an invitation to their inbox. If they accept your invitation, they'll be added to your Contacts List. 

    Every post or comment also offers an opportunity to connect with the member who posted. After clicking into a discussion post, you can click Actions > Add Contact under their name.

    How to view your Contacts

    After adding someone as a Contact, they're sent a notification email letting them know you want to connect with them. Only people who have accepted your invitation to connect are added to your Contact List (and vice-versa), and you can view and manage them from your profile's My Connections > Contacts page.

    In the Contacts area, you can:

    • Click someone's name to view their profile.
    • Click SEND MESSAGE to message a contact.
    • Click REMOVE CONTACT to remove a contact from your Contact List.

    Remember, the quality of your connections is more valuable than the quantity. After connecting with someone, remember to keep engaging with that person on BPA Connections. If they post discussions, leave thoughtful comments. Connect with your colleagues. Comment on their posts. Answer their questions. And have fun!
