Winter Tech Fest


January 28 and 29, 2019

LAVC Professional Development presents Tech Fest: workshops centered on the use of technology. Come partake in one session or as many as you can, as we learn from our own resident experts how to use various technologies well. Sessions run from 8:45-3:45 each day. Lunch will be provided for the first 40 people to RSVP to no later than January 25, 2019. Please advise on dietary choices, e.g., vegan, vegetarian, gluten free.
