KCPDC 2009 Professional Development Conference



The Kansas City Professional Development Conference (KCPDC) will present its 2009 Professional Development Conference, “Work/Life Enrichment,” on Wednesday, March 25.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. at the entrance to Pierson Auditorium in the University Center, 5000 Holmes Street, Kansas City, MO, on the University of Missouri-Kansas City campus.

The keynote presentation is “How to Go Green—and Why.” Everybody knows they’re supposed to ‘go green’, but from there it gets a little vague—and a lot confusing. Are there really, as Time magazine and Newsweek suggest, 79 things we’re supposed to do to save the planet? Are all 79 equally important? Kristin Riott, outreach director for Bridging The Gap, will give you a concise perspective on the world’s top environmental issues, their causes, and the easy, highest-impact solutions you can incorporate into your life at home and at work. Learn, too, how “going green” can help our economy—the nation’s, and your own.

The conference sessions featured two tracks:  Work and Life.  Participants may choose to stay on one track, or alternate from one to another.

Work Track sessions are Give ‘em a Pickle, Getting to an Empty Inbox Every Day and Learning to Affirm and Accept People.

Life Track sessions are Biofeedback and Breath Work for Stress Management, Achieving a Life of Balance (Part 1) and Achieving a Life of Balance (Part 2—must have attended Part 1)

There is no cost for JCCC full and part-time employees since JCCC is a member of KDPDC.   Registrations may be done online by March 18, through MyJCCC using CRN 30539.  Individuals with dietary requirements or needing accommodation should contact Cathy Misenhelter at cmisenhe@jccc.edu or Ext 3958.
