How to Find People in the Members Network
Go to the advanced search at, where you can search by field (city, state, name, org, interest areas, etc.). You can also use the search field at the top right to search for a specific person, see who else is in your city or search by someone’s email address. Also note that the “city” and “state” fields in everyone’s profiles are active links that display everyone else who has the same text in those fields. So if you find someone from Boston you can click on “Boston” in their profile and see everyone else from that city.
