The focus of the Continuing Education Committee is to provide high quality relevant professional development and continuing education courses and events. The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged our committee; we have made tough decisions, we have quickly pivoted into virtual formats, and we have been forced into adopting a deeper resiliency and a growth centered mindset. 

During this current situation we have prioritized our efforts towards our two biggest events, the Fall Business Meeting and the Annual Spring Conference.  As you are aware the 2020 conference, as planned, was canceled.  The committee quickly turned courses from that event into the Resiliency Webinar Series.  We are excited to share that the 2021 Annual Conference will be an all-day virtual event that will reflect the activities of an in-person event!  We have secured a dynamic keynote speaker.  We will have a virtual sponsor and vendor hall, virtual poster presentations, and a virtual hosted coffee hour to start the day’s activities.  We are in the process of securing speakers for three tracks of three courses each. Mark your calendars now for Saturday, March 13th 2021!

The work of the Continuing Education Committee is essential and rewarding.  Our committee is growing and we welcome new members to our group - consider joining!  We are also a very responsive group; we appreciate and consider your feedback, suggestions, ideas, and your critiques too.  Please continue sharing your thoughts!
