AGC Offers New Education, Training & Development Resources

  AGC Offers New Education, Training & Development Resources
AGC will soon launch the Education e-Forum, the latest tool in a series of exciting new resources especially for AGC members and chapter staff involved in employee education, training, and professional development.

AGC e-Forums are e-mail discussion groups like Listservs that are dedicated to the discussion of a particular subject matter of interest to AGC members and chapters.  They enable members and staff to share information with, and seek assistance from, multiple fellow AGC members and staff in a quick, convenient, and economic manner via e-mail. 

To join the Education e-Forum, contact Crystal Yates at yatesc@agc.org.  Once the system is ready to “go live,” which will likely occur some time in November, subscribers will receive a welcome message with instructions for use.  Participation is open to all AGC members in good standing and chapter staff. 

AGC’s other new training and development resources include a monthly electronic newsletter called The Knowledge Source, which provides information on workforce development, training, professional development, and other educational activities, programs, and issues.  To view the October edition, click here.  To subscribe, contact education@agc.org.

In addition, AGC will hold its 1st Annual Training & Development Conference on October 25 and 26 in Dallas, Texas.  The conference will feature presentations on Measuring Training Return on Investment, Developing Effective Project Leadership Skills in Your Workplace, and Tips for Reaching Adult Learners, as well as roundtable discussions on a variety of training and development topics.  Click here for more information.
