MASL's Fall Professional Development Day is the most affordable, school librarian-specific professional development opportunity in Missouri. At just $50 for MASL members and $75 for non-members, it's an incredible bang for your ever-dwindling PD fund buck.

This year's Fall PD Day is being held inside our state's beautiful, historic capitol building in Jefferson City! Attendees will have workshops in legislative hearing rooms, and will dine, visit with exhibitors and listen to the keynote in the capitol rotundas. The 2013 Fall PD Day promises to be an event as unique as it is informative.

The keynote speaker for the event is DESE's Dr. Hap Hairston, who will be speaking on the new performance based evaluation standards for Missouri's school librarians. This is one of the most important developments in the profession this year, and the information he will present is not to be missed.

New to the event: this year, attendees will have the opportunity to win door prizes from exhibitors! 

Workshops will focus on a variety of topics, and a full schedule of workshops will be released within the coming weeks. Register today to secure your spot at the 2013 Fall Professional Development Day!

MASL's Fall Professional Development Day offers exhibitors the opportunity for ample one-on-one time with attendees.  At a cost of just $100 per table, it's one of the most affordable education outreach opportunities in Missouri. 

This year's Fall PD Day is being held inside our state's beautiful, historic capitol building in Jefferson City! Exhibitors will display their wares in the beautiful third floor rotunda and dine there with attendees as well.  The 2013 Fall PD Day promises to be an event as unique as it is informative.

New to the event: this year, MASL will provide exhibitors with cards to collect signatures from exhibitors.  Exhibitors are invited to bring door prizes; attendees must collect signatures from all exhibitors in order to be eligible for door prizes, which will be drawn for after lunch.  During the drawing, each exhibitor will have the opportunity to briefly discuss the services they offer.

Workshops will focus on a variety of topics, and a full schedule of workshops will be released within the coming weeks. Register today to secure your spot at the 2013 Fall Professional Development Day!
