How to Use a Private Community of Practice

Private communities of practice are available to volunteers and other groups through ACUI's website, with the purpose of sharing information and resources, facilitating group communication, and serving as a depository for documents.

The tools available on the community include:

  • A Forum where you can share ideas, ask questions, and have online discussions; because this is a private community, you will be auto-subscribed to receive notifications about new posts to this Forum, and only members of this group will have access to the discussions.
  • A list of Community Members where you can find contact information for members of our team at any time.
  • A Documents section where files can be uploaded and accessed with the group.

The key benefit of using this tool is that discussions and documents can have a permanent home for everyone, all located in one place, so that you do not have a dig through emails to find or refer back to something.

To access these online resources, you must log in the ACUI website, and when you hover over the "Communities of Practice" menu item, the private communities to which you have access will appear. If you have any challenges accessing or using a community, please contact your Central Office staff liaison.
