How do I register for an EO Hub account?
If you are already a member of the EOA you are able to sign up and have access to the EO Hub.

How to use the Forum
The Forum is an open space for you to network online with members, we encourage you to post your questions in the most relevant Group. The EOA will be visible in the Forum, endeavouring to make sure you receive responses to your posts. We ask that when responding, you refrain from giving professional advice unless you are qualified to do so. By posting on the Forum, your comments and a limited profile becomes publicly available.
What groups should I join in the Forum?
Groups within the Forum have been created for discussions between peers, so join Groups based on your role if for example, you wish to speak with other elected representatives, or join a Group for the region in which you are based. You can join more than one Group.
What is favouriting in the Forum?
You may see a small heart-shaped icon in the Forum, if you click this you are 'favouriting' the discussion. This then means the post that has the most favourites will appear at the top of the Forum discussion. If you feel that someone's discussion is really relevant or helpful then favourite this to make others aware.
