2018 Pre-Conference Professional Development Workshops

Wednesday, March 14, 2018

SBCA will once again be offering pre-conference professional development workshops on the day before our annual conference begins.

Workshop registration is now open. Workshop registration fees include break refreshments, along with a networking reception on Wednesday evening following the afternoon workshops. Individuals registered for both a morning and an afternoon workshop are also provided lunch. Fees are used in part to cover food and alcoholic beverages for the activities mentioned above. 

Please see here for a list of the workshops being offered this year and their instructors, preliminary agendas and registration fees. Please note that workshop registration is separate from conference registration.
