2021 PDC Summer Conference


Registration for the conference has ended. Attendees will have access to the Whova platform after the event (3 months for web version/6 months for app version).

No need to leave your home for this year’s conference, we are remixing the plan and bringing the education and networking opportunities directly to you. 

Join your fellow PD professionals for an engaging and interactive forum that puts you “in the room” with industry experts, experienced PDC members, and our PDC Trusted Advisors. The PDC Summer Conference will bring you the educational learning opportunities you have come to expect from the PDC. Learn about the latest innovations in the legal and professional development industries and acquire the critical skills that today's PD professionals need. Don’t forget to share those ideas with your colleagues.
