Learning Circles General Information

The purpose of NSPA Learning Circles is to facilitate dialog and exchange of good practices among NSPA members who are working in similar organizations or have common interests and/or challenges. These groups will contribute to a body of knowledge ​for​ the wider NSPA community. Learning circles meet virtually as a group each quarter. If you are interested in ​joining a Learning Circle, please email Maggie Brubaker

NSPA Learning Circles are a benefit of membership in our association.  Members, please log in to get more information and join the Learning Circle Group. If you are not a current member of the NSPA and are interested in membership, please click here for more information.
