Independent volunteer group. Not officially endorsed or supported.
Join us. No charge.

Are you a former regular, direct employee of HP, HPInc, or HPE -- or are in the process of leaving? If so, you are eligible to join independent HP Alumni Association. Helping each other with life after HP. Menu of HPAA services
No charge, thanks to HPAA members.
The Hewlett-Packard Alumni Association is an Independent organization operated by former employees who volunteer their time. Not officially endorsed or supported by any company.
Membership is also open to heirs with HP-related stock and to spouses, partners, dependents, DEC retirees, and EDS retirees who are receiving company benefits.
Non-U.S. Alumni. The HPAA is U.S.-centric. Alumni from outside the U.S. are welcome to join -- but generally find that the HPAA emails and online forums, except for the TechTalk group, are not useful to them. Instead, use our directory of 190 HP-related social and professional groups worldwide. HPAA membership is not required to join our worldwide LinkedIn group -- or to use our employee stock decoder, our practical advice on using LinkedIn, or our "ASAP Checklist" for people leaving. HPAA Menu for Non-U.S. Alumni
If you have fallen off the HPAA lists, just send a new application to join with your current email address. (It is easiest for our volunteer team to simply add you as a new member.)
How to join -- or rejoin -- the HP Alumni Association.
(If you are on your hp.com or hpe.com email account, forward a link to this page to your personal email account and apply from there.)
Send an email -- as described below -- from the personal email account that you will use for your membership. We do not accept applications from an @hp.com or @hpe.com email address -- you will lose that address when you leave the company. (If you don't already have a personal email account, you can get a free Internet email account in a few minutes. How to set up a personal email account.)
Please select a single email address to use for all dealings with HPAA. (We use your email address, not your name, to identify you.)
An email account that sends challenge replies to incoming emails does not work for HPAA.
We've found that company, professional association, and university alumni email addresses do not work well for HPAA. All of our emails are moderated by the HPAA team. However, the topics we discuss can look suspicious to anti-spam systems and firewalls -- and therefore may be automatically discarded before reaching you.
You need to send your request from the email account that you wish to use for your membership. (If changing your address, be sure to send the email from your new account.)
Send the questionnaire below in an email to email@example.com (Do not send the questionnaire as an attachment.)
Put "apply" then your name in the subject line of your message.
Subject: apply John Example
Copy-and-paste the questionnaire in yellow into the body of the email. Fill in the answers and send. (We read your answers to qualify applications and better understand our membership. We use your email address, not your name, to identify you in our system. We do not maintain a database of other member information. We do not sell or share your email address.)
What happens next?
Our volunteer team will process your request – typically within 48 hours -- and send you a welcome email.
If questions, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
