We are looking forward to welcoming you to Atlanta for this year’s Fall Workshop Series October 14-17 (check-in at 2:00 pm, newcomer's orientation at 5:00 pm, and welcome reception at 6:00 pm on Monday, October 14). A detailed preliminary agenda for the event will be available in early July 2024. Maximum attendance for this conference is 130 and ABPM Conferences regularly sell out so we recommend registering early

100% of 2023 Fall Workshop Series participants responding to the conference feedback survey said they were likely or extremely likely to recommend the conference to a colleague (88% said they were extremely likely to recommend).

We invite you to join us for:

  • Networking and relaxing with fellow Briefing Professionals during the Welcome Reception on Monday night, before 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. Workshop descriptions can be found in this preliminary agenda.

  • Wednesday evening’s dinner, included in your registration fee, is always a great time to network and let loose after all your hard work! 

  • The proverbial icing on the cake: Thursday morning's Tour Day! Our final half-day features two briefing programs: HP Inc. and Microsoft.

Being able to spend time with thought leaders and briefing professionals from programs of all maturity was very energizing. The intimacy of the group was great, as it allowed for some great conversations and relationship building.

– Ricken Patel, Cisco, 2023 Fall Workshop Series

Core/Advanced Competency Courses: The Competency Curriculum is intended to benefit those briefing professionals working to develop their careers in the profession. ABPM is pleased to continue offering these courses that focus on the training and development of briefing professionals at this Fall Workshop Series. 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). 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.

A downloadable and printable preliminary agenda is available here.
