The co-chairs of Professional Development will work to build a cohesive professional development program that seeks to serve the membership of PCACAC. Specifically, the co-chairs will organize and manage a committee that will plan the day-to-day professional development programs. Furthermore, the co-chairs will help identify and develop future leaders of PCACAC by recruiting young professionals to present at programs.  The co-chairs will report on efforts, as well as represent the interests of Professional Development to the President's Council through regular board meetings and communication with President of PCACAC.
