Professional Development

Actively pursuing professional development ensures that knowledge and skills stay relevant and up-to-date.

SAC believes that staying up-to-date with the latest trends in the industry, as well as learning new skills, is critical. Our members benefit from a variety of options.

A group of professionals attend an SAC conference

SAC is currently planning our 2024 Conference from May 9-11 in Vancouver, BC. To celebrate the milestone of SAC’s 60th anniversary, we are planning an exciting programme for speech-language pathologists and audiologists.

Learners will acquire knowledge of emergent literacy, reading, and writing disorders across various populations. This program has been approved as a Certificate of Completion in Continuing Professional Development for 39 hours.

There’s no shortage of ways to get involved and ensure your knowledge stays current. Take a look at events, webcasts, webinars and workshops.
