The Professional Development Committee is also working on a long-range strategy to schedule regional locations. We move regional conferences around the country to reach out to our entire membership. If you are interested in hosting or chairing a regional conference in your area within the next three years, please contact us. This is a great opportunity to get involved, and you will have plenty of help from the Professional Development Committee and the National Office.
