Community Groups:

What are they? Groups are a place for members to discuss, ask questions, and share ideas on many topics. You can connect with others who have the same questions or with people interested in the same topics or locations. Discussion groups help to, well, facilitate discussion. 

How can I use them? There are discussion groups based on a wide variety of questions and topics. There are ways to connect to other members within a discussion group and there are resources specific to that group. 

Where do I view the discussion groups? The group page is where you will be able to filter through and select the discussion group (or groups) you are interested in. 

Who can create a group? Anyone can create a group.
