Current budget realities, travel anxieties, and massive shifts in how the field has and will approach training and development provide managers with the opportunity to “reimagine” traditional paradigms for professional development.

Join us to consider how we have defined and sponsored professional development in the past, the role of employee travel, and share ideas for the future of  investing in and developing  staff.
