)-- The Society for Professional Development is now open for business. It is a new company with a big concept: professional development is more than just attending a seminar or watching a webinar. The website presents several new ways you can grow your business while obtaining the continuing education credits you need.
SPD is committed to more than just fulfilling professional continuing education requirements. We believe that professional development encompasses the entirety of your professional needs from operating your office to marketing your specialized skills and unique experience. Therefore, SPD offers multiple opportunities for you to both improve and expand your practice.
Membership in SPD will provide you not only with continuing education, but also with opportunities to present seminars, outlets for white papers and other professional publications, opportunities to develop webinars, and best of all, the opportunity to directly interact on a professional basis with attorneys, accountants, and investigators, all of whom may be potential clients.
Many of the benefits of SPD are available to members only. To learn more about all the opportunities for professional development that SPD has to offer, please visit our Join Us page. The benefits include:
Significant discounts on all seminars and online courses;
Opportunities to participate in professional forums with other members and experts;
Inclusion in the membership list open to all other members and the general public;
Unlimited opportunities to meaningfully market your services to other members and the general public throughout the world;
Opportunity to publish your professional articles for distribution to other members and the general public;
Ability to request or create seminars tailored to your specific needs.
What can SPD do for me that other professional organizations don't?
Co-Founders of SPD, Barbara W. Thompson and Jeffrey Stein say; “SPD creates a network of attorneys, accountants, and investigators. These various professionals need to come together in order to adequately address their clients’ needs. Members of SPD may seek advice on various aspects of investigations, cases and/or accounting matters from each other and from specifically-endorsed "expert" members, which in turn may lead to contract opportunities among the members. This creates a synergy which allows SPD members to develop new skills, increase their ability to serve their clients, and expand their practices.
In addition, SPD's Regular and Endorsed Membership Lists and its members' specialties or resumes/curriculum vitae are available not only to SPD members, but also to the general public, which increases our members' exposure to potential clients. We have designed the website to be keyword searchable so that a potential client can find a member using his own vocabulary, further increasing the likelihood that the client can find exactly the professional he needs - you."
All interested and qualified professionals are welcome to enroll for any of SPD’s accredited educational offerings. Any professional interested in additional benefits is encouraged to become a Regular Member, and anyone who qualifies may be become an Endorsed Member or Expert. Endorsed Members may be invited to become members of the SPD Advisory Board, which reviews all presentations and speakers prior to their acceptance as SPD presenters, ensuring the continued excellence of SPD programs.
