Join PAL Coordinators, Dianne White and Laura Ellen, and your PAL Colleagues for an online meetup.

PAL Regroup & Level Up! – “Branding” Your Social Media 

We all hoped that 2021 would be a huge improvement on 2020 and – well, it didn’t exactly happen that way. But that’s okay. We’re here to help you REGROUP and Level UP in 2022!

We invite our PAL members to attend this Level-Up session to network and focus on our author/illustrator platforms. We’ll each come with a statement that explains what we want our social media platforms to say about us and our books/illustrations. Each member will share one social media account they want to focus on and as a group, we’ll discuss how that platform supports or distracts from your brand. Our hope is to have members come away with a few tangible and achievable social media goals for 2022.

This virtual meeting will take place LIVE on the Zoom Platform.

Seating is limited, and registration is required, so reserve your seat today.
