In late February of each year, we hold our annual Deans and Directors’ meeting. This meeting is a significant professional development opportunity for the leaders of our institutional membership to network and dialogue about continuing education issues and trends.

To keep our conversations intimate and relevant, the unit leader (Dean or Director) within our Institutional Membership Category, are invited to attend this meeting. The unit leader may invite an associate dean or director from within their unit to participate as a second registration (fee required) from their institution.
