Online Communities Pass Success Benchmarks

ASN Communities offers interest based communities for members who are looking for focused discussion on important topics. Each of these communities is member initiated with specific goals and dedicated leadership. The society's objective is that interest based communities be the destination for members to collaborate, discuss and network together. To achieve that goal, each community is measured against specific benchmarks during its first three months. The following communities have passed all benchmarks and have been extended for another year.
