The MASN Professional Development Committee will be helping local communities to host one day PDI-Mini conferences during the spring of 2020!
Where will they be held? That is up to you! We are looking for programs to host the mini-MOSAC PDIs by offering space and help with the planning.
What space is needed? It depends on what you plan, but most locations will probably need a gym/auditorium to host a general session and at least 3-4 breakout rooms. These could be large classrooms or other multi-purpose spaces depending on the type of workshops to be presented. PDI-minis include lunch so you will also need a place for the attendees to eat.
Want more information or to start planning a PDI-Mini for your community? Plan to attend the Professional Development Committee meeting from 10-1:00 at Stoneycreek Inn in Columbia. (Note: Networking welcome starts at 9:30 with committtee meetings starting at 10:00.) You may also contact Leigh Ann Clayton, PD Committee Chair or Anne Reeder, PD Committee Liason for more information.
