For presenters, this means learning about ways to develop and keep audiences, sharing ideas on best practices and procedures, and particularly for new and emerging presenters, learning from experienced individuals about marketing, operations and finance skills necessary to present a live performance. APA recognizes the importance of including impactful training in the areas of anti-oppression, social justice and equity as an important part of what we can offer to presenters as part of their professional, and personal development.  The APA provides professional development sessions in each Atlantic Province and online regularly, as well as workshops at Contact East and ShiftChange.  APA also tracks and shares links to many webinars and virtual workshops presented by sister organizations across Canada and beyond. The APA works closely with its Professional Development Committee of members and its national colleagues to develop topics that are current and relevant to the presenting field.
