The Annual SIOP Conference is taking place right in our backyard this year (for most PTCMW members, anyway), which presents a unique opportunity to take advantage of SIOP’s preconference workshops. The workshops occur on Wednesday, April 3, the day before the conference begins, and provide an intimate setting to learn from some of SIOP’s leading experts. Each workshop is 3.5 hours, with both a morning and an afternoon session, allowing participants to attend two different workshops. If you cannot afford a full day out of the office, there is also a half-day option that allows you to attend a single workshop in either the morning or the afternoon. This year’s list of workshops includes several topics of particular interest to PTCMW members, including new approaches to pre-hire assessment, validation 201, structured interviews, contemporary EEO developments, and many others. The full list, including detailed descriptions of each workshop and presenter bios, can be accessed on SIOP’s website by clicking here.
In addition to learning from some of SIOP’s leading authorities on cutting-edge topics, the workshops offer an opportunity to interact with colleagues who share similar interests and are facing many of the same challenges. And the networking extends beyond the workshops themselves, with a sit-down lunch in between the morning and afternoon sessions (full-day participants only) and an evening workshop reception, considered one of SIOP’s premiere social events.
Registration for the workshops is done via the online conference registration process. If you have already registered for the conference, it is easy to go back in and modify your registration by adding the workshops. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity!
