Professional Development

As an adviser or counselor, you have the right to spend time on your own professional development. Remember to renew and refresh your own personal and professional reserves so you can continue to do great work. APAC provides many opportunities to renew, refresh, network, collaborate and learn about the latest best practices in advising and counseling. We hope you will become a member of APAC as an ongoing commitment to your professional development.
