All these factors make synchronous communication difficult, and every successful organization uses technology to improve communication. IPMA has a range of virtual collaboration sites, each with a specific audience and purpose.
Each site requires a login or permissions code. In each case, authorised persons can obtain the current logins or codes from your IPMA Member Association. linkages. Note that in addition to these sites, each IPMA Member Association has public and private sites as well.
