OBIAA Virtual Professional Development Sessions (7)

Why should you attend the Professional Development Sessions?

The 2021 BIA Virtual Professional Development Sessions are an exclusive training opportunity available for BIA management; with multiple speakers, moderated discussions, and endless opportunities for professional development and growth.

Since we can’t meet in person, our Conference Committee has been working hard to yet again bring us all together virtually. With that purpose in mind, we are happy to announce 4 Virtual Professional Development Sessions – 2 sessions in April and 2 sessions in May.

Keep checking our website for more information on the topics, speakers, virtual platform, and how you can register!
