Former regular, direct employee
or defined termination date?
If so, you are eligible to join the HPAA. If not, you are invited to join our employee-and-alumni
networking group on LinkedIn.
If you were employed by a company acquired by
Hewlett-Packard, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, or HP Inc. – such as
Compaq, DEC, or EDS – and left before the acquisition was
completed, the HPAA would not be useful to you. Instead,
check our directory of the many independent
for companies acquired by HP.
If you were employed by a company that was spun off from
Hewlett-Packard, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, or HP Inc. – such as Agilent, Keysight, Philips Medical, or VeriFone
– and joined that company after the spinoff, you would not find HPAA
useful. Instead, see our list of
independent groups for companies that were spun off from HP.
Sorry, but contractors, co-op students, interns, and employees of resellers, distributors, and joint-venture companies do not qualify for membership.

How to set up a professional
Specify a reliable email account
-- not one that intermittently discards some emails as spam without your knowledge,
such as a corporate email system or a forwarding service.
Two specific types of email account do
not work at all for HPAA: An account that sends "challenge" replies to incoming emails
