The AZA Network is a new online private social networking community for professionals working in zoos and aquariums. It's the place to go to connect with colleagues of like interests, discover resources and tools, and share ideas and lessons-learned. Much like LinkedIn or Facebook, this resource is available online and from your internet-enabled mobile device.
The AZA Network keeps you connected to the zoo and aquarium community 24/7. Make it a part of your daily routine to login and see what's going on in the Network. Join interest groups and set your profile to deliver the content that matters to you. Set your content alerts and targeted information will be delivered directly to your dashboard and to your email inbox. Use the Marketplace area to find AZA Commercial members for products and services.
Access to the AZA Network is available using your "My AZA" account profile. First, you must log into your account using your primary email and password. Don't have a My AZA account? Sign up for one here.

Your profile in the Network is where you will manage notifications of activity, allowing you options to receive emails as activity occurs, or in a daily, or weekly digest email. The default setting will notify you daily, and you will begin to receive these notifications as activity/content is added. You may choose to manage your own notification preferences and can do this anytime by logging into your profile settings. This is also where you may select your privacy settings and include a photo, bio and social media links. Add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email address book or "safe list" to ensure you receive notifications.
Not an individual AZA member?
Individual AZA members are able to enjoy the full range of groups and resources, including discussion boards, announcements, connect with colleagues, and downloading documents and photos. Non-member individuals are welcome to access the AZA Network, but will receive limited benefits. Non-members will not have access to the resources and any attached documents in the discussion forum. Join today to enjoy the full suite of access privileges.
Listservs for Members
Although the AZA Network is the primary source for communication and networking among the AZA community, AZA still offers traditional listservs. If you are a listserv moderator or just looking for a specific listserv, go here.
