The Community Learning Network is pleased to launch registration for this annual provincial PD & Training Event for CALPs, partners and system stakeholders.

September 24-27, 2019 - DoubleTree by Hilton West Edmonton

Our Symposium Goals:

  • Enhance engagement
  • Provide networking opportunities
  • Provide learning opportunities
  • Encourage communities of practice
  • Celebrate milestones
  • Recognize outstanding achievement in the field

This event is all about making connections, building relationships and learning together!

The provincial Symposium provides an opportunity to build our skills, knowledge and confidence in adult literacy and foundational learning, and to be part of a network that is:

  • bigger than my own organization
  • bigger than my own community
  • bigger than my own region

 We are pleased to announce that our Symposium Theme & Logo for 2019 is:

                                                              LLS Logo

The words, learn, connect, contribute, represent the 3 ultimate outcomes in the CALP PD Logic Model and we believe they are tied to and intertwined with all of the work that each of us do in the CALP system.

 Join CALPs from across Alberta to discover relevant information, fresh ideas and new resources.
