National Events

The Academy hosts two national multi-day events each year with continuing-education credits available.

The Institute & Conference is held each autumn, usually at an urban conference center. 

The Summer Workshop is typically held in a retreat-like setting.  There is usually an abundance of optional free-time events scheduled to provide opportunities to try new activities while socializing with friends and forming new professional and personal relationships.
