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 are not useful to them. HPAA membership is not required to join our worldwide LinkedIn group or to use this website. Menu for Non-U.S. Alumni

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. Please select a single email address to use for all dealings with HPAA. (We use your email address, not your name, to identify you.)
- 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.)
- We've found that company, professional association, and university alumni email addresses do not work well for HPAA. The topics we discuss can look suspicious to an organization's firewall -- and therefore may be automatically discarded before reaching you.
- An email account that sends challenge replies to incoming emails does not work for HPAA
You need to send your request from the email account that you wish to use for your membership. This ensures that the email address currently works. (If changing your address, be sure to send the email from your new account.)
Please send the questionnaire below in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (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 sell or share your email address. Privacy
Please send the questionnaire in an email to email@example.com (Do not send the questionnaire as an attachment.)
What happens next?
Our volunteer team will process your request – typically within three days -- and send you a welcome email.
If questions, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
