“SMA Connect empowers members by providing a way for them to communicate and support each other. This is the primary reason people join SMA… to connect!” This member benefit is long overdue. We are really excited to be able to offer this."
SMA’s Executive Director
With SMA Connect, a new member benefit, Southern Medical Association (SMA) members gain a powerful resource by which members can connect, exchange knowledge and share solutions.
SMA Connect, is a cloud-based, private member-only online community. The community includes an open forum for general member discussion, as well as Board of Directors and Committee forums for facilitating communications and document sharing. Other communities planned for launch include Medical Student and Residents forums.
SMA members can stay connected “from a distance” by setting email preferences to daily digest or they can login to ask questions, help answer questions in threaded discussions. They can post text, links, video, or documents to share, share events on the community calendar, send private messages to other members. There is also a points system by which active members can earn valuable rewards!
