Frequently Asked Questions
Who was affected?
Everyone with an account on NCSC Connected Community, which includes all members of the Ask NCSC! open forum, public communities, and private communities.
Why were the communities shut down?
Since its launch in July 2014, NCSC Connected Community had been an important place for court professionals to share information, pose questions about their business problems to their peers, and learn about trends in court administration. However, in late 2018 and early 2019, we’d seen less activity on the site.
I liked being part of a virtual community of court practitioners … are there any alternative community spaces?
NCSC’s group on LinkedIn, www.ncsc.org/linkedin, has nearly 7,000 members and the platform can also host private groups, if that’s something you used Connected Community for.
Starting a group on LinkedIn is easy: Log in, and from your My Network page, go to Groups, and then Create a New Group. Groups may be either Standard (visible in search and findable by non-members) or Unlisted (unfindable in search, with membership by invitation only.)
Is there an archive of the community content?
The Ask NCSC! open forum was archived as well as some private-community material; contact us at the link below if you have questions.
