ALAPCAE Adult Education Summer Conference
Adult Education: Back to Basics:
The 2015 ALAPCAE Adult Education Summer Conference date is set! July 8-10, 2015 at The Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa, at the Convention Center in Montgomery, Alabama. We have a variety of exciting and informative workshops tailored to Adult Education instructors. I think it is safe to say that everyone will gain valuable professional development. It will be a unique opportunity to socialize, network, and exchange ideas with other adult educators. The keynote speakers are always inspirational and entertaining. We hope everyone will walk away with new ideas and will be able to benefit from this great learning experience.
