We are very excited to announce that we now have access to a NEW Professional Development/FLEX Community in which we can share announcements, solicit ideas for good trainers/presenters, share documents and materials, ask questions and get help from other professional development practitioners! This online community is a place just for us to connect, share, and learn from each other.

  1. You must have a Vision Resource Center (previously Professional Learning Network) account. For those that do not, please register for an account here.
  2. Once logged into the Vision Resource Center website, click on “Enter the Vision Resource Center” button; this will drop you into the portal
  3. On the top navigation bar, you will see Connect. Hover over and choose ‘All Communities’
  4. From the list of communities, find and click on CCC|Professional Development

This is an exciting time for Professional Development! It is important that we stay connected with each other, share best practices, and advocate for funding and other resources that will support the excellent work we do in our Professional Development programs. The Professional Development/FLEX Community is a tool we can use to help us accomplish that and I hope that you find it to be a valuable resource for you! If you have any questions, please send me an email or give me a call at 661.362.3100.
