STS Highlights: October 2023
My local heat wave is finished, and I sincerely hope your weather is cooling as well. It was a brutal summer. As we transition into the Autumn season, a lot of focus can change which is why I’ve selected resources that should align with this time of year. Look for information about National Bullying Prevention Month, ELDT theory training, flu season, the upcoming NAPT Conference & Trade Show, Halloween, and a few other tid-bits.
I’m also personally excited to attend and to see everyone at this year’s NAPT Conference!
The goal with these monthly resources is always to help elevate your career, department, or organization. As always, we take pride in helping you meet your training requirements and goals.

The conference offers Professional Development Series (PDS) opportunities, dynamic and interactive sessions, fun evening events, and the unequaled Trade Show.
