During 2017, we worked with the DHS Employment First Office and Local Employment First teams on their ongoing Community of Practice (CoP), a subject-based discussion series of topics important to Employment First. Each topic was featured in a 2-hour CoP session, which was recorded, and in an online ongoing Discussion Forum to allow access to the information and continue the conversation(s).

Thank you for tuning into the various Community of Practice webinars this year. There are no more webinars scheduled during 2017. However, you can review the recordings of past events below.
