    What are Communities? 

    NYSBA Communities are private, online professional networks for members. Communities are built on the concept of listserves, allowing for member-to-member communication across the Section, but they also offer enhanced features for networking and participation, including personalized member profiles, a member directory, and a shared online document library.

    How Can I Use It?
    Communities are seamlessly integrated with nysba.org: you can use your NYSBA member login and password. To access the TICL Section Community, you must be a member of the TICL Section. (Not a member? Join here. Dues are only $40/year with NYSBA membership.) You can interact with Communities via the online interface, by email, in NYSBA's LawHUB, or via a mobile app, at your preference. To download the app, search for "NYSBA Communities" in the Apple or Google Play Store.
