The Affiliate Group Network – AGN facilitates communication between and among NPCA affiliate groups for purposes of sharing best practices and more. It consists formally of an annual meeting of the leadership of NPCA’s affiliate groups, scheduled each year in conjunction with Peace Corps Connect. The meeting is open to all. NPCA also presents a webinar series (see below). Throughout the year, NPCA affiliate groups are encouraged to communicate via the Facebook Affiliate Group Network.
