Join us in person for the 2022 Adviser Workshop


It really is “a little MORE” this year! After going virtual the last two years, we’re excited to be in person again for the best professional development for yearbook advisers, anywhere.

Join us July 15-17 at the Hilton’s DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center Dallas. The 2022 Adviser Workshop offers an innovative format, letting advisers customize their schedule to their individual needs and circumstances. Sessions, taught by nationally-recognized trainers, provide downloadable resources and interactive opportunities. A variety of yearbook and adviser-related topics will be featured, including theme, coverage, design, photography and staff management. An optional tech training day offers instruction on Photoshop, InDesign or Encore.
