NEDRA’s 3-5 Learning Network

Geared to juniors in prospect development (generally those who have worked ~3-5 years in the field), these communal-based set of sessions will allow participants to learn both from esteemed Advisors and fellow cohorts. The 90-minute virtual sessions will begin with either a panel discussion or presentation from Advisor(s), which will last ~45 minutes. The remaining 45 minutes will be spent in open networking and discussion among the cohorts, the Advisor(s) for that session, and the three Program Guides.


Note: The 3-5 Learning Network will be limited to 15 participants, who are committed to attending all virtual sessions and being camera-ready for active participation. Decisions will be made and shared with applicants in August.
