Can I invite someone to the Hub?
The Hub is a closed community. However, you are welcome to invite colleagues and partners that work on your SELN project team. Provide them with the Hub address (www.selnhub.org) and tell them to click the Register button on the top right. The registration form then needs to be filled out. The form has a field asking for their state and a field asking for the name of the person who suggested they join. If we recognize the name, we will accept them without seeking approval. If we do not recognize the name, we will contact the state lead for approval.
