Mo-Kan Chapter

Professional Development


Outside speakers present various topics each month. Topics focus on professional development, including some personal development issues to enhance members’ individual ‘brand’. If you are interested in presenting at one of our meetings or know of a good candidate, please contact the Program Chair.

Conferences & Seminars 

Annual conferences, both on a national and a regional level, are sponsored by the national ABWA organization. Seminar topics include both professional development as well as personal growth. The chapter helps subsidize some of the costs of registration for members attending the conferences.
