MAFN Workshop Series
The Workshop Series is focused to provide current topics of interest to business and group facilitators in the Mid-Atlantic Region. Ten workshops, each three hours in length, will be provided to a group of 25 to 50 facilitators, ranging from novices to experts. These workshops are given in a large room that can be set up to meet the workshop presenter’s needs. The workshops should be highly interactive and inclusive, and aimed at broadening the knowledge, skills, and abilities of the participants. Workshop participants include MAFN members and non-members.
The MAFN Board of Directors recognizes the level of effort and time involved in presenting a workshop. PD Workshop presenter expenses are reimbursed (receipts required) and provided with free registration to future Online Webinars and up to 3 D.C. workshops. Other benefits, terms and conditions may be specified in the MAFN Presenters Guidelines and Agreement which will be provided after your proposal is submitted and accepted by the PD Workshop Committee.
