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.
