CPEN Committees and SIGs


Committees and Special Interest Groups (SIGs) offer CPEN members the opportunity to network with other educators and build leadership skills. All members are encouraged to join a committee based on their interests. Joining is as simple as updating your profile noting interest in a committee or SIG.
