We all strive to provide informative, thought-provoking, engaging and well-attended programming that also provides an opportunity for participants to make connections with their peers. But this is easier said than done. This session will explore three case studies from your PSO colleagues, who will share not only successes and lessons learned but also their challenges and failures.
See examples from other PSOs on what they are using to guide this process.

The power of the Forum Network is the expertise, insight, and advice that is shared among the 250+ staff nationwide.

During this extended session you will get to know your colleagues as more than just voices on a conference call!
