What is a Friend of KCCL?


Friends of KCCL are students, professionals, and supporters of Collaborative Practice who wish to join in the Collaborative conversation and connect with the KCCL membership. If you are not yet trained and are working on the membership requirements, we invite you to join as a “Friend of KCCL” to connect with the Collaborative Practice community.

As a Friend of KCCL you are invited to attend practice group meetings, KCCL social and training events, and join KCCL committees. You will connect with Collaborative Professionals and others interested in Collaborative Practice and can work to build your Collaborative Practice.

Students & Interested Professionals

We understand it takes time to complete the requirements for membership. The Friend of KCCL membership is available to professionals for twelve months after completion of necessary training while acquiring the other requirements for membership. Once you have been trained and have had an opportunity to get more involved in Collaborative practice, we hope you will join for the additional benefits of full membership.
