Communities of Practice

What is a Community of Practice (COP)?

AST’s COPs are unique, specialty-area focused groups within AST. Each COP is dedicated to exchanging knowledge, offering networking opportunities, advocating for issues that are relevant to each of their constituencies, and developing resources to meet the needs of their members. The unique strength of the COP model is that new ideas and goals can originate from COP members and then become integrated with the overall goals and activities of the entire AST.
