Affinity Groups – NCSEA Connects – were created to help NCSEA members connect with peers on a host of topics, as well as expand your knowledge base and resources.
What is it? NCSEA Connects provides child support professionals a network of colleagues who share common goals, with the intent to bolster relationships, learning opportunities, mentoring, and professional development, in a community-building way. Groups are organized organically around topics that NCSEA members want. NCSEA provides the forum and guidance for organization, with Affinity Group members taking lead on the details of participation.
