NHPCC Communities of Practice

The NHPCC is establishing several communities of practice (CoPs) designed to thoughtfully foster discussion and idea-sharing at the national level.

CoPs bring people together from across the nation by discipline or by topic to promote collaborative and interactive learning opportunities that:

  • Promote professional development and idea-sharing for promising new practices
  • Focus on the organic learning process that evolves as CoP members learn about each other’s work
  • Meet at specified, regular intervals (i.e., quarterly)
  • Include a resource-sharing component
Current NHPCC CoPs

If you have any questions about the NHPCC CoPs or are interested in joining a CoP, please contact

“Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly… People in communities of practice share their experiences and knowledge in free-flowing, creative ways that foster new approaches to problems.”
