​Workspaces is a web application that allows for the collaboration between NEMA staff and members. The sites are security trimmed so that only authenticated, approved users will have access to a section, committee's, etc. documents. It allows you to upload documents, create tasks, plan and schedule meetings, discuss projects, and much more. Below you will find a quick walkthrough of Workspaces’ more prominent features.

For technical assistance, please contact the NEMA Webmaster at or by phone at (703) 841 3255.

Using Workspaces:

On the left-hand side of the workspaces window is the navigation where all the sites that you have access to are displayed, along with all child workspaces. If for some you do not see the workspaces site you need access to, then contact NEMA staff to get the proper access. This may be due to the fact you are not in the nemalink list.
Each workspace, represented by orange icon , contains lists such as Calendar, Shared Documents, Tasks, and Team Discussion.

Clicking on the small plus button next to the site, expands it and shows the sections, committees, etc. (subsites) that you have access to:

Clicking on the Product Section, then takes you to the homepage for that section:

From this page, you can navigate to the different lists that this Product Section has, such as documents, Calendars, Links and tasks. You will find links to these lists on the lower left hand side of the page.

 You can check any appointments for the month and change the views to daily, weekly or monthly. The calendar works similar to the one in Microsoft Outlook.
