If the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic has taught us anything, it is that in-person conferences and meetings are not the only way—or even the best way always—to engage educators in professional development. Our 2022 Conference in New Orleans theme was “Recommit, Renew, Reimagine.” Embedded within that theme is the notion that effective professional development is not a single event, but an ongoing commitment.
