The Community provides its members with a number of year-round continuing opportunities including professional development opportunities, networking and collaboration, and our monthly Gatherings.
Each month, we gather in a Zoom online meeting room for either a special presentation from one of our members or a round-table discussion we call “Road Warriors,” the topic of which is usually announced by our email newsletter, sent out a week or two before. The Gatherings generally start at 1 pm Eastern.
