WHAT IS D.C. CONNECT?
D.C. Connect is our current solution for older listervs. It is an integrated platform that allows users to connect directly and share information with fellow Community members.

CAN I USE D.C. CONNECT LIKE A LISTERV?
Yes! You can post and reply to messages directly from your email.
To learn how, see the question at the bottom of this page titled "How Do I Post to D.C. Connect from my email?"

HOW DO I LOG IN?
Go to connect.dcbar.org and click the red “Log In” button in the top right corner. You will be redirected to log in on the D.C. Bar website with your usual credentials. You will then be redirected back to D.C. Connect.

WHAT KIND OF THINGS CAN I POST?

  • Networking: Introduce yourself and inspire dialogue between members
  • Share a Resource or Article of Interest
  • Ask a Question or Share Advice
  • Share Leadership/Volunteer Opportunities
  • Share Job Postings
  • Remind Members of Upcoming Events

HOW DO I CONTROL WHAT INFORMATION IS VISIBLE IN MY PROFILE?
Navigate to your profile page, then select the "My Account" tab and choose "Privacy Settings" from the drop-down menu. This will let you control what information is visible to whom. After you’ve made changes, click the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page.

HOW CAN I CONTROL THE FREQUENCY AND FORMAT OF EMAILS I RECEIVE?
Navigate to your profile and click on the "My Account" tab. Choose "Community Notifications" from the drop-down menu. On that page, there are subscription options: Real Time, Daily Digest, No Email.

For each community, you have the following delivery options:

  • Real time: sends an email every time a new message is posted.
  • Daily digest: sends one email to you each day, consolidating all posts from the previous day.
  • No Email: allows you to be part of the group without having emails sent to you. You can still post and read others’ messages by logging into the community site.

HOW DO I START A NEW DISCUSSION THREAD?
You can post a new discussion either from D.C. Bar Connect, or directly from your email. To post a discussion from the Connect website, go to “Participate" > “Post a message.” To post directly from your email without having to log in, send an email to your community’s direct email address.

HOW DO I RESPOND TO OTHERS’ POSTS?
If you receive digest emails from your community, you can reply to the post directly from your inbox by clicking “Reply to Group” or “Reply to Sender” at the top of the digest. You can also reply from the Connect website by clicking the “Reply” button at the top of the post.

HOW DO I POST TO D.C. CONNECT FROM MY EMAIL?

  1. Open a New Email using your primary email address (the one you use to sign into the D.C. Bar website)
  2. Fill in your subject line and body of the email like you normally would
  3. Send the email to a community that you are a member of using the following email addresses
