PPALM will hold our 2nd Annual Wellness and Professional Development Seminar this summer in Washington, D.C. on Sat., Aug. 11, 2018 at the AARP Hatchery (576 7th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20004). This is the second of a series we launched in 2017.

This series aims to address wellness in the broad sense as it impacts our professional careers as leaders. We will be joined by guest speakers representing the military, federal government, physical fitness, finance, and other industries to offer advice and insight into how we can remain healthy in these areas. How do we balance not only physical wellness, but financial wellness, spiritual wellness, and other pillars of wellness to ensure we're the best leaders we can be? 

Join us for a morning of learning, developing and networking on Aug. 11. Breakfast will be provided.
