The Association Development Community of Practice convenes the largest global community of microfinance associations (52 microfinanceassociations, or 74%, are SEEP members). Microfinance associations play a powerful role in advancing the industry and focusing on the growth and development of their leadership is one of the most strategic investments that can be made in the sector. The Association Development CoP strengthens their operational, technical and financial capacity through peer-to-peer learning and exchanges, capacity assessments, strategic planning,management training, thought leadership and product development.
