The Quaker Communications Community of Practice (QCCOP) is a group of volunteer Friends and staff members who are committed to best practice in website design, social media excellence, and advancements in technology that benefit Friends meetings. QCCOP is the successor to Quaker Cloud.
Members of QCCOP support one another through a peer-to-peer community managed by FGC staff members. In this group, members may seek support and ideas for their own projects and lend their assistance to others. Members of QCCOP also have download access to the Quaker Cloud website theme, free and portable to any web host that supports WordPress.
Any member of the community may browse the links on this page for resources related website design, management, and hosting. We look forward to bringing further resources as the community grows.
