Overview

We are excited to invite all permanent part-time and full-time employees to our upcoming Professional Development Day beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 16th, at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center. This is a required day for permanent part-time and full-time employees.

We strive to offer enrichment sessions -- from mind and body to the QEP reveal -- that will be of interest to everyone (see the Schedule for full details).

In addition, we have set this day up in such a way that participants can register early for each session they would like to attend. This will hopefully alleviate the problem of too many people and not enough space for a session, as well as sessions without participants. Please select the individual tickets for each session you would like to attend by clicking on a registration link. You will have until Dec. 4th to register.

We look forward to seeing you on Dec. 16th. If you have any questions, please contact
