We are approximately half-way through the ACADAOS membership year. How far have you made it through the Professional Development Program? If you haven’t started yet, what are you waiting for? Put a little time on your calendar and make your professional development as an advisor a priority!
If you have already completed Tiers 1 and 2, you might be looking for ways to earn more points in Tier 3. Over the past few weeks, we have been updating and adding professional development opportunities and resources to the Professional Development section of the ACADAOS web site. Most of the professional development opportunities we’ve highlighted are free (yay!) and many are asynchronous, meaning you can do them when you have time! If you have other ideas you would like to see highlighted on that page, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
If you do find a professional development opportunity which has an associated cost, we are also excited to announce the launch of our online Professional Development Fund Grant Application! Any dues-paid ACADAOS member is eligible to apply for a professional development grant up to $100 per membership year to support your professional development ventures. Details about the grant can be found on the application page.
