Each Community Forum brings us together, creating a community and encouraging communication directly between Certified Living In Place Professionals™ (CLIPP™) graduates, and all visiting professionals, including home designers and contractors, builders and architects, manufacturers and suppliers, trades-persons, realtors, lawyers, care providers, occupational and physical therapists, non-profit and government staff...anyone involved in building or human care.
These free, one-hour, on-line Community Forums are scheduled monthly through June, always on the 2nd Tuesday at 4:00 PM ET, and each 4th Thursday at 9:00 AM ET. Attendance is limited. Community Forum monthly topics and registration links are found below.
Topics include, and we always welcome your Living In Place ideas.
  • Personal Hygiene Toilet Seats
  • Shower Solutions
  • In-Wall Toilets
  • Plumbing Piping In-Wall Systems
  • Hydronic Floor Heat
  • Kitchen and Bath Faucet Features and Trends 
  • How Smart is Your Home

The Forum moderators will start each session with a focus on pre-established discussion topics then open up for general discussion.
Participant audio and video will be muted. You may use the integrated chat feature to type-in questions and reply with your ideas. The Moderator will keep the conversations lively, informative and focused. You may be occasionally asked to click-vote on a topic. If you wish to share a picture, webpage, etc., ask the Moderator. You can also chat privately with other attendees using the same integrated chat feature.

All Community Forums are free. Limited attendees, register soon.

We invite you to register for each session and invite other professionals you know and would like to help make all homes safe, accessible, comfortable.
