Welcome to our Networked Improvement Community (NIC) page. We invite you to participate!

Members of the online community will have access to the discussion board (Google Group)/email distribution list and be able to:
  • Connect and collaborate with like-minded experts
  • Share and receive information
  • Ask questions of your colleagues in the field
  • Receive emails (instantly or as a daily digest) of posts to the group
We strongly encourage you register with a Google/Gmail account as you will gain access to the web interface allowing you to:
  • Read and search all online community posts
  • Post to the group using the web interface and also by email
You may register a new Google account that associates with your non-Google email address (e.g. YourName@YourOrganization.com) here. If you still wish to join with a non-Google/non-Gmail email address, you will still be able to read/post to the online community by email, but you will not gain access to the user-friendly web interface.

Gmail/Google users, click here to join/access the online community!

Non-Gmail/Google email account users, click here to register your email address!

All members and posts will be moderated. For more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us here or visit this page.
