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. Guide to 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.
HPAA membership is also open to spouses, partners, and dependents 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.

How to join
(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 for the various HPAA services. (With thousands of members, we have many duplicate names.) 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 be automatically discarded before reaching your email account.
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. Please use the form of your name that you would use on a name badge – i.e. "Bill Hewlett" rather than "William R. Hewlett" – and use upper and lower case.
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 do not publish a member directory. No member information is sold or shared by the HPAA.)
By applying, you agree to accept the terms of the HPAA Membership and Posting Agreement.
What happens next?
Our volunteer team will process your request – typically within 48 hours -- and send you a "Welcome to the Hewlett-Packard Alumni Association" email.
If questions, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
