NSLA organizes and presents two spring PD workshops every year for members and those interested in professional development opportunities.
The dates range from the end of April to early June, and are typically held in two locations: Antigonish/New Glasgow (to reach the eastern half of the province) and Bridgewater/Windsor/Wolfville (to reach the western half of the province.)
