A Community of Practice (COP) is a group of volunteer engagement professionals that meets virtually to share issues, strategies and best practices, get and receive colleagues' support, make connections, and provide an opportunity to share information, experiences, and resources specific to the industry/structure or community they serve. The current COP’s are Rural Communities, Cultural Arts, Healthcare, and Transportation. Learn more about COP's here.
COP Facilitators assist with running the Zoom meeting, welcoming new members and facilitating discussion. COPs normally run monthly or quarterly. We will help set up the meetings and publicize to members to join, so the facilitator is mostly responsible for running the meeting. Dates and times flexible to what works for the facilitator.
We are always looking for facilitators to start a COP. Some examples include:
- Faith Based
- Thrift Stores
- Have another idea? Great, we'd love to help you get it started!
