Educate. Engage. Empower.
Scottsdale, Arizona

EMBAC offers great in-person opportunities to network and advance professional development – from the industry-event-of-the-year, the annual conference, to the Marketing and Admissions Program to regional meetings. EMBAC also recognizes the convenience and ease of virtual offerings, which help make great content and enlightening discussions more accessible to members. With that in mind, EMBAC has designed several different types of virtual offerings that explore the latest trends, look at topics of current importance, and promote member engagement and discussion.

Virtual Discussion Forums (VDFs)

Delivered in a synchronous (live) format, VDFs are free sessions, one hour or less in duration, typically structured as a facilitated discussion around a topic of importance to the working professional education industry. Some of these VDFs involve an expert, others are purely intended to be a sharing of challenges, insights, and ideas among participants.
