What are the benefits of presenting your workshop through APOST?
By making your workshop available through APOST, we will provide the marketing needed, assist with logistics, and provide technical assistance upon your request. You’re also showcasing yourself and your organization as a partner in the sharing of best practices and resources! (APOST would like to offer professional development opportunities free of charge to organizations. Therefore, we are not providing financial compensation for professional development trainers.)
