Still Not a Member of In the Loop? Join to Get Their Best Practices of The Day Emails

As we’ve mentioned before, In the Loop is a great resource for enrollment assisters. Being a part of the In the Loop Community allows you to interact with other enrollment assisters from around the country, learn best practices, share trouble shooting tips and more. Need another perk to get you to join? In the Loop also sends out daily emails with their best practices of the day from fellow enrollment assisters. These emails provide you with tips and tricks to make enrollment a lot easier and smoother. Often times their suggestions are things you might not have even thought of before. So if you still need to join In the Loop*, click here.

* In the Loop is only for enrollment assisters and other enrollment stakeholders, in order to keep it a place where people can confidently share information. As such, In the Loop does require registration and approves each person that wants to join.
