  • Finding and posting great resources – we have a library of videos under Media, written materials under Resources
  • Asking questions, starting conversations and sharing experiences and stories – Conversations is the place for this
  • Starting or joining a group with a focus – we have local, regional and language Groups, groups from specific trainings, as well a wide variety of special interest groups
  • Posting a notice of your upcoming AoH Events in the community calendar
  • Creating your own page and harvesting your experience by writing a blog
  • Share your stories of how you have created value with the AoH on the story map

We value conversations that matter. If you’re new to the Art of Hosting or to the idea of an online Community of Practice, please have a look at the etiquette guiding our online space. If you need technical support with using this Ning, check the FAQ page, which has detailed instructions. Please help us to keep this site intentional by respecting that it is not an open social networking site or the place to promote yourself or activities not linked with the Art of Hosting.

There are plenty of great people, great initiatives and great resources to explore here – welcome!
