Do you want to be the best you can be? What does Professional Development mean to you? We have a wide variety of programs that include: Career development, eLearning, and getting to know one another (meetup) opportunities! Mentorship, Coaching, Leadership and more are just a few of the skill enhancement tools we want to address.
Mentorship stands as one of the pillars of professional development, for it facilitates the exploration of needs, skills, desires, and motivations. Both having and being a mentor allow for the development of long-lasting relationships of trust, respect, and sound guidance.
We will also work to improve our skills in all areas of training and leadership development. Things like coaching, coaching being described as using an interactive process to help individual and organizations develop more rapidly and producing more satisfying results improving other’s ability to set goals, take action and make better decisions. We are also working towards supporting our candidates for the CPLP and APTD.
Our chapter is actively working to bring helpful and timely resources to our membership. We are actively working on bringing in experts/ facilitators for topics to help you improve on your existing skills and learn new! Check out our events page for our currently scheduled sessions.
