PCFA Online Community Digest December 2018
PCFA Online Community Digest
For our final digest for 2018 we wanted to take the opportunity thank you for being a part of our Online Community.
This year we welcomed over 1300 new members, participated in hundreds of conversations on the Community Forum, delved into new content on the Video Gallery and heard about the latest advancements in research through the weekly Research Blog.
In 2019, we will explore ways to improve the digital platform to keep up with the growing membership and strengthen ways for you to stay connected and engaged.
We wish everyone a safe, relaxing and happy Christmas. Please note that the PCFA office will be closed from Monday 24 December 2018 until Friday 6 January inclusive, opening again on Monday 9 January 2019.
During this time we will not be moderating the forum or posting new articles. We encourage all Online Community members to observe the House Rules and to (as always) respectively engage with one another over this period.
