Upcoming Communities of Practice

We have several upcoming Communities of Practice (COP) meetings!

What’s a COP, you ask? A COP is a group of people who share a common concern, set of problems, or interest in a topic. This group comes together to fulfill both their individual and group goals related to these shared interests or challenges.

COPs cover topics you’re interested in learning more about, connect you with peer organizations to exchange promising practices, and identify solutions to the challenges you face within your programming. Check out our exciting COP lineup below!
