IADPO is committed to supporting its members through unique learning opportunities. As part of this effort, we will host members-only E-learning sessions four times per year.
Topics are based on needs and interests communicated to us through member surveys. Each session will begin with a 45-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute group discussion. Come prepared with your own experiences and bring your questions for the presenter.
