OPCA's Peer Groups

All the peer groups on this page are by invitation only.
As a member of an OPCA peer group, you'll meet virtually and face-to-face to:

• discuss hot topics on an ongoing basis.
• bounce ideas off your peers.
• have difficult conversations in a "safe" space.
• connect with both new and long-term members of the peer community.
• expand your content / leadership skills and knowledge.
