This time of year comes with lots of changes, whether you have little ones heading off to school for the first time, kids returning to school, or older children leaving home to start college or university. Even if there are no students in your household, this is a good time to think about furthering your own education. Here is a round-up of upcoming professional development opportunities for you to consider.
There are a number of organizing industry conferences taking place in various locations in North America:
