Practice Area Discussion Groups

Practice Area Discussion Group

As part of the formation process for new Communities of Interest (COI), potential COIs start out as Practice Area Discussion Groups. By doing this first, AADE members have time to get the conversation and engagement of other members started, without having to focus on developing a leadership team or action plan.
