More Panelists Still Being Added

What’s better for your career and professional development than attending the LERN Virtual Conference – – being a PRESENTER at the virtual conference.

The research shows that when you share your knowledge, you benefit more than the people who hear you.

That’s why we’re still adding a few panelists for some of our sessions. If you want to be considered, email Maria Damiani at maria@lern.org

Why Our ‘Core Skills’ Track is the Most Popular

It’s simple: the Core Skills track of 8 sessions gives your staff the fundamental Must-Know information that every staff person with every lifelong learning program needs to be successful.

Having been on the road visiting programs all over North America every business week of the year, LERN’s Greg Marsello reports that staff know only half of what they need to know to make your program even more successful.

That’s why over 500 people attended the sessions of our Core Skills track last year.

Another reason: your staff can come away being a Certified Program Planner (CPP) after passing the CPP exam later at no additional cost.

Weekly Update Sept 6 – 10
Why the LERN Virtual Conference Is Here to Stay

Next year’s LERN Virtual Conference is already in the planning stages. Even with the addition of an in-person annual conference in 2022, the LERN Virtual Conference is here to stay.

Here’s 3 reasons:
1.More sessions, available anytime 90 days afterwards. With the virtual conference, you get to hear all 45 sessions, far more than the number you can possibly attend in-person. And you get to hear them 90 days later, in your own best peak learning time. Even hear some again – – yes, replay those best sessions and learn even more.
2.Your whole staff can attend. We got the numbers. The average organization sends 20 people to the LERN Virtual Conference. Try spending the money on that professional development for an in-person conference.
3.Whole new in-person format. LERN is planning a whole new in-person conference format that is more engaging and involving for you. Your all-new in-person conference will dovetail and complement the LERN Virtual Conference.

We’re not going ‘back’ to just an in-person conference. We’re going Forward with another LERN innovation in learning and programming.

Weekly Update August 30 – Sept 3
