Keeping the Analytical Momentum Going Year ‘Round!

MORS Communities of Practice

MORS Communities of Practice (CoP) are formed to continue discussions from the annual Symposium and Special Meetings:

 -  Provide an opportunity to meet regularly throughout the year
    (mostly virtual, but one face-to-face meeting is scheduled during annual symposium)
-  Work on any outstanding issues from Special Meetings that weren’t resolved
-  Share best practices, working being done, etc., 
-  Work on Projects
 
CoP Goal: 
The goal for each Community of Practice is to be tied / linked with one (or more) of the annual symposium’s composite groups (CGs) or working groups (WGs). A survey of potential members is conducted to determine the function of the proposed CoP. Once the function is known, then the CoP can be organized to support the purpose, for example,

-  Activity / Project Based – organized around activities or projects
-  Sharing Information – organized around sharing information, collaborating with other like groups
-  A Combination of the above
 
Play a Role, Volunteer Your Support: 
Your participation supporting a MORS Community of Practice helps to ensure their success. To consider supporting a CoP, please read:
