Partners of the Americas Launches Online Communities of Practice

Membership Unit, Partners of the Americas
Partners of the Americas understands the role that virtual connections have in engaging our members to connect, serve, and change lives. As Partners continues to grow and maintain a presence in the Americas, so do the technological advances that provide us with avenues to connect, engage, share knowledge and experiences, and grow personally and professionally. 

One of the foundational values of Partners' mission is to connect. Connecting individuals and organizations across and within borders drives the everyday work of Partners and its members. To achieve this goal and increase connectivity, Partners of the Americas is pleased to launch online Communities of Practice for members to join and participate in lively discussions on topics and geographic regions relevant to the Western Hemisphere. For decades, members have successfully connected through Chapter partnerships, professional and student exchanges, and volunteer opportunities. Now, these Communities of Practice provide an additional avenue to connect in a virtual environment.
