National Afterschool Association Convention Recap

Jim Murphy (Chief Programming Officer) and Steve Stookey (Chief Operating Officer) attended the 2016 National Afterschool Association Convention in Orlando last month! We were a sponsor, had a booth, and also hosted a workshop. During our workshop, we shared how our online training is solving so many of the issues surrounding professional development.

We also had many raffles, including a raffle to give away four (4) privately-branded LMS sites! Congratulations to the following people have won these sites for their organizations:
