Interested in Being a Co-Leader?
Switchboard is seeking 2-3 co-leaders to help coordinate the community of practice. Each leader will receive professional development in CoP facilitation and a gift card to recognize their contributions to the CoP. Leaders will be expected to help engage CoP participants, set the agendas for initial CoP meetings, and help facilitate monthly CoP meetings. The anticipated time commitment of a CoP leader is five hours per month during the initial launch period of June-July 2021, then two hours per month afterwards. CoP leaders will be renewed each year.
