Get Involved

The AVP Education Network is a collaboration of active committees with many teams and workgroups that are involved in a variety of tasks. For a current list of these teams and workgroups, click here.

AVP facilitators are invited to:

Join and Participate in education commitees
  • Attend monthly meetings and join in the discussion of the work of the committee.
  • Join the education committee email group and participate in discussions.
  • Work on education committee projects and tasks.

Conducting global meetings can be technically challenging. 

Two strategies have been put in place to give more people opportunities for access and participation. If you are experiencing difficulty joining a meeting:

1) We always have an agenda on Googledocs that we follow during the meeting. We try to write everything that is being said so anyone who can open the googledoc link can follow along and add comments by simply clicking on the area you want to add to and type in your comment. The Googledoc links can be found on the committee Google team drives and members can write to education@avp.international or education@avpusa.org.  The International Education Committee agenda link can also be found on the committee section of the AVP International website (registered users).  

2) The AVP International Education Bulletin is produced every two weeks. The Bulletin highlights the top issues that the education committees are working on. We send these updates to you through email. This gives everyone the opportunity to offer feedback on these issues in a timely manner.

We realise these strategies are not a replacement for having you participate in the meeting. But the Bulletins have been warmly received by committee members and have kept members informed and engaged in committee actions.
