We all know the value of education and just how important that can be to get to where you want in life, as well as with your organization. The more you and your employees know, the more your organization can grow – hopefully. How can organizations turn continuing education into a competitive advantage? That’s something we’ll be addressing on our next episode of Association Chat on Tuesday, October 18, at 11 am PDT/2pm EDT.
