NEED 2 KNOW
JANUARY 5 - VANGUARD PD DAY
PD will take place at various locations throughout Atlanta. Folks will have the option of signing up to visit/tour one of the companies or museums being offered. We will have required pre-learning (which will count towards 2 hours of your PD day!) and time at the end to evaluate and reflect.
We're still confirming a couple of the locations, but as soon as we do, we will allow you (all cohorts!) to pick your PD location. Stay tuned!
