Instead of a conference,

PRO is hosting monthly Statewide Training

Our virtual training is a great opportunity to connect with colleagues from across the state as well as to learn something new as each training focuses on a different topic related to our profession. Training takes place on the second Tuesday of each month (except on holiday weekends) and is open to members and non-members alike.

Check out the calendar for dates and details.
