2016 Fall Workshop Series Evaluation Statistics and Quotes
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Austin for this year’s Fall Workshop Series October 17-20 (welcome reception begins at 6pm on Tuesday, October 17). A detailed preliminary agenda for the event is available above.
We invite you to join us for:
Networking and relaxing with fellow Briefing Professionals during the Welcome Reception on Tuesday night, before the valuable educational sessions over the following two days.
Hard work and lots of fun during four in-depth half-day workshops on subjects of importance to Briefing Professionals, where attendees will come away with fantastic tools and ideas for their programs. Full workshop descriptions can be found in the downloadable agenda.
Thursday evening’s dinner, included in your registration fee, is always a great time to network and let loose after all your hard work! This year we'll enjoy an evening at the Bullock Texas State History Museum.
The proverbial icing on the cake: Friday morning's Tour Day! Our final half-day features three diverse briefing programs: Dell EMC and IBM.
Core Competency Courses: The Core Competency Curriculum is intended to benefit those briefing professionals working to develop their careers in the profession. The ABPM is pleased to continue offering these courses that focus on the training and development of briefing professionals at this Fall Workshop Series. The ABPM will offer six core competency courses covering the basic competencies of the briefing profession and six Advanced Level courses. Advanced Level courses do not require completion of the core courses and can be taken at any time. Core Competency Courses offered during this Workshop Series are indicated in the session titles with a “CCC” (Core Competencies Course) or "ACC" (Advanced Competencies Course). The ABPM maintains records of completion (members can monitor their records via their online profiles), and once you’ve completed any core competency course, the ABPM will apply credit to your ABPM profile and provide you with a digital certificate of completion upon request.
