Providing professional development programs that align with your association’s goals is increasingly challenging in an environment where technology is constantly evolving, member expectations are rising, and competition is growing. Spark: The Art and Science of Adult Learning is a two-day virtual conference designed for association professionals to explore current trends in association education and plan future directions for professional development programs that drive nondues revenue.

Through a virtual and interactive platform, Spark incorporates live chat into sessions, allowing you to share your insights and learn from your peers about the art and science of personalized learning, engagement, and technology and how to apply principles of adult learning to instructional design. Register today to:

  • explore association professional development trends
  • discover strategies to remain nimble in the face of technological advances
  • gather tips and tools and how to apply them to your educational programming

The online conference is scheduled over two days and features live online sessions and facilitated chat discussions. Before the first day, registrants will receive login information and links to test their computer and become acquainted with the platform. Participants will have access to recorded sessions, reference materials, and more for up to 60 days following the program.

Registration for this online conference will close Tuesday, January 29, 2019, at 12:00 p.m. ET.
