Connecting and Collaborating:

These take the form of conferences, such as the already successful LinCP Forums, round-tables, person-to-person meetings and interviews, webinars and conference calls.
Focused work teams form Initiatives to address industry issues, improve existing processes, invent and refine new tools and techniques, and build new best practices.

White papers and research papers are produced and published, which help establish I-LinCP and its members as expert sources for industry information.

Opportunities for leadership are available on the I-LinCP Board, on the advisory panel, on committees, and within Initiatives. Students are encouraged to participate. I-LinCP members and representatives are encouraged to promote I-LinCP work through alternative venues and to speak at related conferences.
