The Region8 Professional Activities plans to:
- Increase the visibility of PA within the region through written material that includes information about Region8 PA, workshops organization, etc. PASC is presenting at Sections Congress in San Francisco.
- In 2012 PASC is organizing annual PA Summit with SBC 2012 in Madrid (http://www.sbcmadrid.es/2011/11/welcome-to-sbc-madrid-2012/)
- Organize smaller regional Professional Activities Summits to train the future trainers in Region8 and to increase the number of volunteers involved in PA. Currently we are planning events in Jordan, Saudi Arabia (EAST and West) and Spain Sections.
- Provide an updated PA Handbook manual to guide organization of PA events in sections. Plan is to finish efforts started in 2011.
- Implement the Though Leadership Program and similar programs in Region 8 with organization of pilot events.
