Chat
 

This member benefit was unveiled in September 2010 on the HAA website.  If you have a question, comment or issue, you can immediately chat with an HAA staff member through an instant message. 

To chat with an HAA staff member, just log-in on the HAA homepage. A log-in is required, because chats are only available to HAA members. Once a member is logged in, he can choose which department he would like to visit with by clicking on the link next to their department name. If a staff member from a department is unavailable, their phone number will appear instead of a chat icon. 

When a chat is initiated, a chat screen will appear:

Simply click on the “Compose message here…” and begin typing your message.   Click on the “Send IM” button to send it.  If a staff member has stepped away from their desk and is unable to chat, after 90 seconds you will have the option of emailing them your message.

The chat option is available for the following departments:

  • Education
  • Government Affairs
  • Member Services
  • Resident Relations
  • Special Events
  • Supplier Services

The HAA staff is committed to providing outstanding customer service to members.
