The ABQLA Youth and School Sections have something FUN to share with you.

Because you will learn things to share with your school, we can call it ‘Professional Development’… but really? THIS IS PURE PLAY. One whole day. And your boss is likely to approve it because it’s relevant, timely and practically free.

We have attached a note for your employer, if you think they need extra convincing.
