How is the site structured?

We have tried to keep the structure as simple as possible so that users can find their way around easily. The sections About Us and Training and Events should be self-explanatory and are available to members and non-members alike.

Then there are some HESPA Member only sections, which contain some great resources:

Discussions - a series of topic based discussion boards where members can ask questions, post replies and 'like' comments. You can also sign up for daily alerts for these discussions, so that they come straight to your inbox. 

Connect - a list of all members, as well as their institutions. You can filter by region, role, mission group and more, then export the list if you need to.

Sector Jobs - we list lots of planning related jobs on the site. If you wish to post a job on the site, simply email the details to jobs@hespa.ac.uk.

MyHESPA - you will find lots of useful content through the site, such as news articles, case studies, discussions and even jobs - on each page, you can add that page to your MyHESPA - so you can come back to it later. MyHESPA is also where you can update your profile, email preferences etc.
