The ACDA-PA board has been busily discussing alternate forms of professional development for members, and we would like to invite you to the following events:
In addition, each month we will be sharing several video and print resources with you, including repertoire lists from each R&R area!
We are looking for more content to share this summer! Please submit the following by May 25:
You should have just received an email from email@example.com. Our website content management system, Weebly, sent that out automatically after I uploaded the membership database to the site to create member accounts. Please follow the link to complete your membership registration.
Since most of us have a lot of time on our hands right now, I figured it would be a good time to get this taken care so we can start using the member area to share content in the future to our members.
Stay healthy and safe!

For those members attending the Eastern Region conference this week, ACDA-PA is able to provide Act 48 professional development hours for your participation. You must complete the hour log as well as the assessment survey and return it to Regina Gordon within 2 weeks of the conference completion. Hours will be submitted to the Department of Education and, once approved, should appear in your Professional Education Record Management System account.
The election for ACDA-PA President-Elect Designate has begun. The voting window runs from February 5-16, 2020. Ballots are provided through ElectionRunner.com.
