Mini-PDI

Each year, the Aviation Chapter of ASMC hosts a one-day Professional Development Institute (PDI). Taking the spirit and goals of the National PDI, this Mini-PDI is shorter and focused on the needs of the local workforce surrounding Wright-Patterson AFB. Keep reading for information about our upcoming and past Mini-PDIs, including presentation slides where available.

ASMC Mini-PDI 2021

Mini-PDI 2021 Flyer

The theme for the 2021 Mini-PDI is “Hindsight is 2020 – From Challenges to Change.” This year will be our first fully virtual Mini-PDI, taking place on the CVR Teams platform as a Teams Live Event. The event will run as two half-days, 8:00am-12:00pm on 28-29 April. There is no cost for attendance this year, and the event is worth 6 CLPs/CPEs.

Please register at this link. Registration is open through Friday, 23 April. You do not need to be an ASMC member to attend! We plan to send out the CVR event links to registrants by email on 26 April.

We know some people do not use their CVR accounts very often, so we will hold an optional Live Event where you can test your CVR account and equipment to make sure you can see and hear the stream. This test event will run 1300-1500 EDT on 21 April. Please use this link to access the test event any time during the two-hour window. (The link will require you to login with your CVR account, that way you can see if your account is active.)
