Connected Community. CPCA's member-only, online community.
In late 2019, CPCA launched a new member communication platform, CPCA Connected Community, which provides a collaborative environment to connect, engage, and share critical information and best practices in real time. This private “community” allows CPCA members to post questions, receive peer feedback, and upload and access library resources. There are many additional benefits to this platform, including the ability to share large files without cluttering your inbox and instant access to your CPCA contacts. We also have a mobile app (see below)!
Check out this live demonstration of how to use Connected Community!

How to Set Up Your Profile on the CPCA Connected Community:
1. LOG IN.
Log in at https://cpca.connectedcommunity.org using your CPCA website login credentials.
TIP: We recommend you click on the "remember me" box the next time you log in- then you won't have to on future visits. If you don't remember your login credentials, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. COMPLETE YOUR PROFILE.
Your peers will want to know a little bit about you. Share something new about yourself and upload your photo. Your immediate contact information and demographics are connected to our database software, any attempt to change your title, name, email etc. will not save in your community profile. Any contact information changes need to be emailed to email@example.com and your profile will automatically update once we make the changes in our database.
TIP: If you have a LinkedIn account, feel free to upload your info from LinkedIn.
3. NOTIFICATION SETTINGS.
Your default notification setting is set to daily digest, so any community discussions posted to the site the previous day will arrive in your inbox first thing the following morning. This email is from "California Primary Care Association". You can respond to any conversations directly from the digest email by clicking on the button "Reply to Group" or "Reply to Sender".
TIP: You can change your settings by clicking on Community Notifications, under the My Account tab in your profile page. You can set up custom notification settings for each individual community you're in by choosing real time, weekly digest or no emails allowing you to join the conversation at your leisure.
4. POST A MESSAGE.
Have a question? Your peers have the answer! Go to Discussion, then Post a Message to send a note to colleagues in your communities.
TIP: Some organizations have very strict firewalls that may interfere with your ability to receive messages. Please be sure to ask your IT department to "white list" cpca.connectedcommunity.org.
Just like the "take a penny, leave a penny" model, if you find something useful on Connected Community, we hope you will share something of your own! You might even ask for feedback on your shared resource. To share a document, go to Libraries, then Add a New Entry.
6. JOIN A NEW COMMUNITY.
If you click on the Communities tab on the home page you'll see two options. "All Communities" or "My Communities". You are a member for each community that displays on the My Communities page. To join a new peer network community please email your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
