The Communities of Practice offer a specialized home within ATIXA to meet the unique needs of particular members’ constituency groups. These Communities facilitate and support the lively exchange of information, offer resources and allow for ongoing and engaging dialogue to promote the free flow of ideas.
By creating connections with other peers in your Community of Practice, participants have the opportunity to discuss successes and challenges, identify trends and best practices and offer issue-specific guidance, all while breaking down the barriers of isolation in their work.
