Time to network with your peers and enjoy lunch will be built in as well.

Professional Development Program- Webinars

TOC’s Professional Development webinars are open to both full and virtual registrants. These sessions will be between 60-90 minutes presentations with interactive elements. All TOC virtual events will be hosted on the Pheedloop platform and recorded for future viewing.

TOC Community Events

Changes this year.

We are striving to incorporate the lessons learned through these trying times while listening to the feedback we received from our registrants in the annual survey. As a result, we have made some changes to the way TOC will serve you this year. In the survey results, many indicated they were ready to come back together in person but there are still some who are hesitant so we decided to ease back into in-person meetings by hosting bi-monthly in-person sessions (September, November, January, March, and June). We will be back at the City Club of Washington as a central location with lunch for those able to attend. 

Each in-person learning event will also be available as a live stream option. Those with a full, early bird, or group registration will be able to take advantage of the in-person sessions even if they are unable to physically join us.
