The Professional Development Committee is concerned with career issues throughout the life cycle of the Society’s members both within and beyond the classroom. The committee endeavors to:
  • Focus on all aspects of the career landscape and life cycle, including the ways in which our members’ identities and personal lives intersect with their careers.
  • Develop resources for members in all institutional locations
  • Educate members regarding professional issues, especially when new concerns arise
  • Liaise with various member committees on projects that cross interests
  • Advocate with other organizations on behalf of the interests and needs of members
