The Forum

Ask Questions. Share Your Wisdom: Online Discussion Platform and Forum FOCUS Virtual Opportunities

The Selected online Discussion Forum provides you the opportunity to access the knowledge and experience of your peers, any time of the day or night by simply sending an email or accessing the Forum platform. This is the place to find timely answers to you most pressing and difficult questions, offer advice or simply learning from reading the group conversations. The Forum FOCUS takes the discussion to a virtual meeting platform. Join in on a Zoom call every month as we address specific topics of interest to you. Moderated by Selected members, this is a virtual opportunity to have dialogue with your peers, access resources and openly share challenges and successes.
