Recreation Manitoba is actively creating Communities of Practice to assist individuals working and volunteering in the recreation and parks sector in learning and connecting. The following was adapted from communityofpractice.ca

How does it work?
In Recreation Manitoba's case we host online Zoom calls open to anyone in the sector. Generally we invite one or two speakers to do short presentations on topics of interest to sector and then give those on the call an opportunity to meet and share information, ask questions and problem solve. The meeting agenda's are driven by the people in the sector and the information and knowledge they are looking to gain.
