New Principal Book Club

The PA Principals Association is offering a new, FREE professional development opportunity for members: New Principal Book Club.

This is a great personal growth opportunity for you to network, share and be mentored.

Target Audience: Principals who are starting in their position as a principal.

The Book Club sessions are for new building principals and new central office leaders. We are planning to offer a professional development opportunity in the spring for assistant principals.

The first book to be discussed is Developing the Leader Within You 2.0 by John C. Maxwell. Two chapters will be discussed in each Zoom webinar.
