WHSA Communities of Practice (CoPs) are groups comprised of individuals with similar roles with the goal of solving common problems and developing best practices. Participating individuals engage in joint activities and discussions, help each other, and contribute information. They share concern and passion for what they do and pool their experiences to build a repertoire of resources, stories and tools. Each CoP will meet a minimum of four times, with the possibility of additional sessions if the group so chooses.
Featured speakers will be included with each CoP gathering event!
WHSA CoP Gathering Dates:
September 13-15, 2021
