USBG National Education Week 2020


Our fourth annual USBG National Education Week is here! Each year, the USBG Education Committee asks chapters to provide a multi-day seminar (or ‘Academy Days’ as they were previously called) for its members as part of a collected organization-wide initiative to highlight and focus on ongoing education offerings for USBG members. The Education Week events are promoted with the common hashtag #USBGedweek. In 2019, 43 chapters participated, providing 196 hours of learning opportunities for 2,500 attendees! Below are some answers to frequently asked questions to help your chapter plan for #USBGedweek 2020.
