Missed Sessions Policy

Community of Practice members cannot attend every once in a while and take a few months off and then come back. Belonging to a Community of Practice is a professional commitment, and once a person chooses not to attend for a few sessions, she or he cannot come back. People understand that in order to be a Community of Practice member, one must register and make a commitment to attend and participate. In order to maintain attendance and cohesion, no drop-ins are allowed.
