2021-2022 Professional Development Program

Our Professional Development Program Committee is hard at work planning a fantastic year around our new theme “Reset Your Compass: Chart Your New Future.”

We are currently accepting proposal submissions to present at one of the upcoming events. Interested in presenting? Details can be found on the PDP Call for Proposals page.

Changes this year.

We are striving to incorporate the lessons learned through these trying times. As a result, we have made some changes to the way TOC will serve you this year. We want to ease back into in-person meetings; we will be starting this year by hosting just five bi-monthly in-person sessions (September, November, January, March, and June).

We are excited to bring you two new opportunities to leverage TOC – a virtual registration and discounted group rate. The virtual registration will allow you to access all of our online content and virtual events. You will be able to see archived presentations, participate in virtual networking events, and more. The group rate offers full registration for groups of 3 or more at a discounted price. This way, you and your teammates can all connect with TOC!

Professional Development Program- In Person Learning

We want to ease back into in-person meetings; we will be starting this year by hosting bi-monthly in-person sessions. You can expect an interactive presentation to be followed up with group discussions and/or Q&A periods to deepen the learning of the topic. Time for networking with your peers and enjoying lunch will be built in as well. 

Location: City Club of Washington
Time: 11;30-2:00 (unless otherwise noted)
Dates: The 2nd Tuesday of September (14th), November (9th), January (11th), March (8th) , and June (14th)

Professional Development Program- Webinars

TOC’s Professional Development webinars are open to a large audience of training professionals across the country. TOC provides all support for the webinar including webinar link, call in number and a professional producer to handle introduction/closure. You are required to provide the slides/content. No online presentation experience necessary, making this an excellent professional development opportunity.

Professional Development Program- Annual Institute

The Annual Institute will be held May 1-4 at the Doubletree by Hilton in Downtown Wilmington, DE. We anticipate attendance of approximately 100 registrants with 15-25 per breakout session. Proposals for delivering sessions at the Annual Institute will be collected separately. You can find more details on the 2022 Annual Institute page.
