Looking to plan your 2018 PD?

For the first time ever, CPHR Alberta is offering a full-year Professional Development calendar. Your feedback has driven this increase in our PD offerings, and we've aligned these topics to requests in last spring's PD survey.

How is our Professional Development Program different from other CPHR Alberta events? Our PD events are almost all full-day learning opportunities. These seminars offer an opportunity to drill down into each topic in a way that the shorter Speaker Sessions can't. Our goal is for the Professional Development Program to deliver the tools you need to help your HR team, and give your career an edge.

Live outside Edmonton or Calgary? We're currently working to deliver better PD in your area as well. In addition to potential in-person sessions in other CPHR Alberta Chapters, we're putting the finishing touches on live-streaming sessions that you can access online anywhere.

We wouldn't have gotten this far without dedicated volunteers. Thanks to the CPHR Members involved in our Professional Development Committee for all your contributions.

If you have any feedback, suggestions or questions please feel free to contact me directly.

Best regards,
Manager, Professional Development
