Practice Groups

Participating in Practice Group meetings are a great way to broaden and deepen your relationships with other Collaborative professionals; get to know new people who are coming into Collaborative Practice as well as veterans with whom you haven’t yet worked; and build your knowledge and skills through presentations on meaningful and relevant topics. Below is a list of meeting dates and locations. You can also check the Calendar for the latest meeting dates and information. Due to COVID-19, most meetings are being held virtually.
