About our Workshops

PSC’s members and other attendees have been very supportive of the workshops that have been offered since the Spring of 2020, and the Society is most appreciative of the understanding that has been extended as new approaches to conducting workshops were developed and implemented to fit the constraints that were imposed by the pandemic.

Feedback from members is essential, and has us continuing to offer online workshops along with introducing smaller in-person offers for late summer and fall. We respect that until all feel safe, we will continue to accommodate the changing times. With that mindset, the Workshop Committee has been busy over the recent months to bring a line-up of wonderful talent to our members going into 2023.

Given the ever-changing challenges of Covid 19, RSV, and the flu, we will continue to assess whether it will be prudent to conduct these workshops in person, or whether it will be necessary to revert to offering them online if possible. Stay tuned for updates as information becomes available.
