Professional Development Uplift 

We are in an exciting time of change and development, and it is an opportune time for us all to examine and explore our approach to professional development education. We cordially invite all of you to be a part of the evolution of CSL Education.
Over the past two years, the CSL Professional Education Department offered an eclectic array of courses on topics such as Self Care, Professional Skill Building, American Sign Language, Building Blocks for Ministers, and other areas. There were more than 80 classes offered and enrollment exceeded 1000 students. However, it had become clear the program could benefit from a more concrete structure, and we think it is a good time to pause and re-evaluate our Professional Development offerings.
We stand at the precipice of a new chapter in our organization’s history and have a great opportunity to construct a program that has transformative potential for CSL Members, CSL Professionals, and beyond. Your input, collaboration, and dedication are pivotal as we look towards the future.

PD Uplift: Creative Think Tank

Anyone who has an interest in professional development or those who are curious and want to participate, we encourage your registration and participation in the PD Uplift: A Creative Think Tank sessions Wednesdays, September 13, 20 and 27 from 10-11:30 am MT.

PD Uplift: Focus Group

We are forming a PD Uplift: Focus Group to take the ideas generated in the PD Uplift: Creative Think Tank sessions into the next year to reshape our Professional Development landscape and move from offering isolated courses to a comprehensive program. The anticipated launch of the new program is September 2024.
For those who would like to share their expertise and be considered for the Professional Development Focus Group for the next year, please complete the questionnaire.
