As a TTA provider, you can help the COP get off to a strong start by offering some basic infrastructure. For instance, you might set up a free conference call number, recommend the frequency of calls (such as suggesting that the group meet monthly) and provide a set of suggested dates. You could also set up a regular meeting of COP leaders facilitated by you, the TTA provider. This type of regular support can serve to reenergize COPs.
Another way to provide infrastructure is to set up a community website to reduce COP start-up obstacles. You might rely on online services like Google Groups, Wiggio, Ning, or Jive. Another option is for you to work with the COP leaders to help them establish their own COP website.
