One Wednesday of each month is dedicated to the Professional Book Club. The Training and Development Department hosts an informal discussion facilitated by Brian Kielson and Kelly Okken from 3:00PM to 4:30PM on a variety of professional development topics.
JMU employees are welcome to join in the conversation and can sign up through My Madison for topics that interest them. The series is offered "a la carte". Attend all the sessions or only the discussions that most interest you.
Participants are encouraged to read the monthly selection before attending the discussion. A limited number of books are available to be checked out of the Training and Development Professional Resource Collection. Some books are also available on audio/CD.
Please contact Renee Reed (email@example.com) via email or phone (8-7398) to borrow the books or request an audio/CD version.
