The AHECS Executive Board at its meeting on 10th December 2020 acknowledged the excellent work that has been done by Task Groups over many years. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to change the way that we work across our Institutions and also gives us the opportunity to move to a new model of Communities of Practice. We would also want to pass on sincere thanks to all Task Group Chairs and members, past and present, for all your work to date and to advise members that rather than Task Groups, we will now move to a new model of Communities of Practice. As such all Task Groups will come to an end in December 2020 and we will relaunch in January 2021 with communications to members regarding the new Communities of Practice. Watch this space for further details of the Communities of Practice in January 2021!
