The NETA Peer Learning Communities (PLC) help members' staff increase skills, collegiality, and their long-term commitment to public media's education mission. PLCs provide a space for sharing best practices, developing professional support networks, and identifying high-impact projects that members could jointly pursue. NETA's PLCs are Community Engagement, Content, Education, and Marketing and Communications (MarCom).
Join your community!
Each NETA PLC has an member-elected executive committee consisting of a chair, vice chair, members-at-large and staff liaison. NETA Members are welcome to join a PLC that best fits your role in public media. You can connect with your PLC through the NETA Liaison, Public Media Learns members-only PLC space and Facebook Groups.
