Do you know someone who is looking for advice on a topic? How about someone who is an expert at an activity? We make it easy to invite your friends to our Community!

You can invite a friend from any board in the community. To do this, choose a board that would interest your friend and navigate to the main landing page for that board. For example, to invite a friend who is interested in Backpacking:

  • From the main landing page of the community, click on the ‘Activities’ drop down menu.
  • Click ‘Backpacking’ to go to that board.
  • Once on that board click the ‘Board Options’ drop down menu.
  • Click ‘Invite a Friend’.
  • Enter your friend's email address in the text box.
  • Write a personal message in the text box.
  • Click ‘Send Invitation’.

You’ve now invited your friend to join the community! Once they join, be sure to encourage them to introduce themselves!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
