Cultivating the Adventures of P&S Employees

The need for professional development for P&S Employees has long been a priority for the Professional and Scientific Council. One of the opportunities Council has created is the full-day Professional and Scientific Council Professional Development Conference.

The 2023 Professional and Scientific Council Professional Development Conference Planning Subcommittee includes P&S Employees who are also serving on Council as well as P&S Employees who are not currently serving on Council. Each of the Conference Planning Subcommittee members have volunteered their time, effort, and energy to coordinate this 11th annual event dedicated to the professional development of Iowa State University P&S Employees.
