CLIC Regional Leads

A team of professionals working together

Links to resources designed to support Regional CLIC Leads to facilitate regional communities of practice can be found at Collaboration in Common. A private CLIC Leads group has been created to host helpful resources, links to articles and research of interest, and as an environment for CLIC Leads to collaborate, share ideas, and discuss topics related to their work. This group is only available to leads funded through the CLIC Project. CLIC Leads have been invited to participate in this Collaboration in Common group.
