Individuals or groups interested in establishing a Community of Practice (CoP) or requesting an enhancement to an existing CoP should email The Collaboration Business Owner receives and reviews all requests for new communities. 


Establishing a CoP is an evolutionary process and new communities will not be approved unless the following are met:

  • Community objectives have been thoroughly thought out.
  • Appropriate roles and responsibilities have been assigned.
  • Key community leaders accept their respective content management responsibilities.
