Industry Partnership

COVID-19 Community of Practice

In responding to the need to provide an outlet for the sector to come together and discuss the impact of COIVD-19, share solutions and issues and be updated on current information, the Industry Partnership began hosting a regular Community of Practice meeting.

Here you will find the recordings and associated resources from those meetings, running from October 2021 until current day.
