What are the forums?

Admin-Focus Forums consist of several small groups made up of 12-16 administrative professionals interested in improving their skills and knowledge.  These meetings will take place in person in California.  Other in-person forums may take place outside of California, as arranged.  Each meeting will be held quarterly for 3-hours.

The Virtual Admin-Focus Forums consists of the same format as the Admin-Focus Forums; however, these sessions will be virtual, last 2-hours and held quarterly.
