with Region II
Region II's Professional Development Workshops are an outstanding new resource serving the specific needs of our research and sponsored programs professions.
Region II’s workshops:
provide detailed information that participants will be able to use immediately
focus on current general and specific topics in research and sponsored projects administration
are presented by recognized leaders in research and sponsored projects administration from Region II
foster local networks of colleagues
are cost-effective, one-day events offered in locations where participants will not require overnight travel
Hosting entails local scheduling and coordination, assistance with registration, pre-event photocopying, and parking arrangements. The workshop requires a conference room accommodating up to 75 participants at round tables, projectors, and internet access and ample space for the presenters to interact with the audience. Lunch is included, available either nearby or in the presentation room. For more information, contact PDC Chair Charles Bartunek at email@example.com.
