Who can be a member?

Anyone looking for new opportunities for personal professional growth and improvement or anyone who would like a voice in identifying the skills and knowledge they need can be a member.

What will members of Continuing Professional Development Learning Communities do?

They select topics and approaches that best serve their learning style and address their needs and also develop, recommend and implement strategies that improve services to adults and their families and focus on program improvement as well as individual growth.
Members will also address the interrelatedness of:

  • Effective management techniques
