Parents As Collaborative Leaders (PACL)
Location Announcements & FAQ May 13, 2014It's not too late to be a part of the 2014 Spring and Summer PACL Trainings.
These FREE 3-day trainings are all inclusive. This means your room accommodations, meals, training materials and travel reimbursement are covered. All you have to do is "lead" your family into the arrangements while you are away.
Q: Can I travel to a different region other than my home region for scheduling purposes?
A: YES, provided space is still open in the transferring region. So get your application in soon.
Q: Why aren't you announcing all location addresses?
A: We are doing our best to pick locations as central to applicants in the region as possible. We'd hate to have the majority of attendees travel across the region, unnecessarily. We hope to have all locations announced in the upcoming weeks.
Q: What happens if I applied and didn't complete the application because I didn't know the location information or had more questions?
A. Don't worry, your application more than likely saved. Please email us and let us know that you are ready to give us the thumbs up, so we can pass your application to the selection committee.
Q: Why are we expected to stay if we end up living very close to the training location?
A: Because we think you are worth the investment! We want you to get the full PACL experience, and this means immersing yourself in collaboration at dinnertime one night. Or figuring out a way to talk your PACL mate out of taking the last 7-grain bagel at breakfast. Basically, we want you to be able to come out and leave your other duties back home. We know that in some cases this is not feasible, but please, don't let that stop you from applying. If you want to attend but can't stay in the hotel, please email us. Unfortunately, leaving early or arriving late can not be arranged.
Q: I applied and haven't heard anything.
A. The selection committee will begin sending acceptance letters this week.
Q: Where do I apply?
See the attachments for more details about the training. You can call or email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions.
