In the coming weeks eXtension will release a call to form new Communities of Practice. Everyone interested in forming a new community or with ideas for a new community should start thinking about pulling in the right people to move the ideas or community forward.
Tentatively, eXtension is looking at a March 1, 2012 deadline for application submissions with funding being awarded by mid 2012. Watch your email inboxes in the coming weeks for the formal call for new Communities of Practice . The Community of Practice application process is being revised and you can watch its progress at http://create.extension.org/node/1363.
