Communities of Practice

Communities of Practice are open to IAP2 Australasia members only. Their purpose is to provide members with a way to meet other practitioners, extend networks, learn from each other, and share ideas and issues.

Members build their skills and knowledge in their particular industry, while supporting others. Groups can support professionals at all stages of development. The aim is to build groups for experienced practitioners and complement the work IAP2A is doing to form practice groups for new practitioners.

An important aspect is to provide a safe, confidential space for members to share issues they may be having and access a ‘brains trust’ to benefit from the experiences of others. Many engagement practitioners work alone or in small groups, so these groups will provide valuable encouragement, support, development and a sounding board.

The communities of practice meet monthly via zoom with a particular focus or topic of discussion.

We invite you to join this group and be part of the conversation. You will need to meet the eligibility criteria as outlined in the Terms of Reference.
