As a participant, you will learn best practices, share expertise, develop creative approaches to new and not-so-new problems, establish networks, and review ethical standards for our profession. We are certain that the unique combination of a vibrant curriculum and a diverse group of participants and mentors will offer you a refreshing and rewarding experience.
