Professional Development Conference - Thursday, April 10 and Friday, April 11, 2014


A one-day conference with educational sessions led by RPTA Alumni currently working in the field.  This is a great opportunity to meet and network with alumni.  

A few things to keep in mind when attending PDC:

  • Your fee pays for the conference meals: Thursday night social, Friday breakfast and lunch.
  • RPTA classes are cancelled on the conference day so students are able to attend PDC.
  • Students are encouraged to dress in a professional manner and bring a complete resume.
  • Alumni are taking time out of their busy schedules to lead these sessions – students are asked to be respectful and engaged during the sessions.
  • Alumni are happy to talk individually with students after their sessions– students should initiate conversations with the alumni.



Conference Fee

2014 Conference Fee is $15 for alumni and $10 for students.
