The Alliance for Strong Families and Communities will be launching a new online learning community at the 2019 Alliance National Conference, Oct. 16-18 in Indianapolis, that enhances current online collaboration opportunities.

Through the implementation of this new online learning community, members will not only be able to participate in networking and discussions and access the Alliance Library, but also register for and participate in webinars, online courses, and other Alliance learning opportunities in a central location. 

Over the past several months, eight member organizations, representative of the diversity of our membership, tested and provide feedback to improve the member experience. Responses from members have been extremely positive, especially in navigating the learning experience including having discussions among members and accessing webinars, courses, in-depth learning opportunities, and the Alliance Library. 

The Alliance’s test group has reported that it is convenient to have these resources available on-demand. This is appealing not only for community-focused education and training, but also for on-demand staff onboarding and continuing education. 

This new platform will be showcased at the 2019 Alliance National Conference and members are encouraged to bring staff responsible for education and training, so they can best leverage this platform across their organization to strengthen their overall impact.  

The Alliance is also hosting a series of webinars about the enhanced learning community. Use the links below to register for one of these sessions:

The platform will be available for use after the Alliance National Conference, so don’t miss these opportunities for a sneak peek!

A special thanks to our members who helped the Alliance beta test this enhanced system this summer: Family & Children’s Place, Family & Children’s Services of Mid-Michigan, Jewish Family & Children’s Services of the Suncoast, SaintA, Seneca Family of Agencies, The Family Conservancy, UMFS, and Villa of Hope.
