CPsquare practice notes
sharing what we do and (and trying to explain why we do it that way).

CPsquare conferences are open but intimate. We examine a particular subject within our general field of communities of practice in greater depth across several days or weeks.

Our conferences are primarily by and for CPsquare members. Membership is open and you are invited to join us. (There are several categories of membership. Dues are low enough so that a year's membership costs less than many other conferences.) In addition to dues-paying members, a few people participate as guests during the conference:

  • Guests of the conference who are making a presentation (and are invited by the conference organizers)
  • Guests of an individual CPsquare member (who join as "a friend of CPsquare" and designate the individual as "sponsor" on the membership form). The expectation is that sponsors will help their guest participate and become acquainted with the CPsquare environment)

CPsquare conferences usually combine synchronous and asychronous elements, making participation possible from anywhere in the world.  (See the times in the password-protected community calendar). We will typically use more than one of our several platforms for our interactions in a conference.
