The program includes topics on business management, education, accounting/finance, DNA, technology, and speaking.


    Sessions will be 75 minutes each, a 60-minute presentation allowing for in-depth exploration of the topic, followed by a 15-minute question and answer period. Closed Captioning will be available via live Zoom captioning and on the recordings.


    Be sure to tune in during the dedicated times for socializing and networking and join the fun of Speed Networking and Round Table Sessions.


    The member price for full PMC registration is $175.00. In accordance with their commitment to inclusiveness, the APG Board of Directors has set a lower PMC registration price than in previous years. There is no reduction in the quantity of or quality of the PMC offerings – just simply attractive member pricing, making it more affordable for members to attend.



    APG is pleased to offer three workshops this year. Each workshop will be 2½ hours long providing plenty of time for interactive, and actionable learning. There is a nominal fee of $20.00 per workshop, in addition to the PMC registration fee. Workshop attendees must be registered for the PMC in order to participate. Seats will be limited, please see workshop descriptions for capacity numbers.


    If an attendee chooses one or more workshops, they will still have the ability to view any missed sessions as recordings.



    All sessions (except workshops) will be recorded. A total of 15 sessions can be viewed in real time during the PMC and the remaining 6 sessions or any missed sessions can be viewed as recordings for up to 30 days after the PMC. Closed Captioning will be available on the recordings.
