Annual Trainer Meeting
2020 Wilson Trainer Meeting UpdateGiven the overwhelming impact of the COVID-19 virus, Wilson has made the difficult decision to cancel this summer’s Wilson Trainer Meeting. This event was originally scheduled for July 13-14, 2020, at the Seaport Hotel in Boston. Coming together as a group has always been a highlight of our year, and we anticipate doing that again next year. We are currently exploring having the conference return to Boston in summer 2021 and will provide updates once plans are finalized. We look forward to gathering in person again to share learning, laughter, and friendship.
The Wilson® Trainer Meeting is our annual gathering for Wilson® Credentialed Trainers to expand their understanding of literacy education, research, legislative issues, and Wilson’s programs.
- Engage intellectually with expert speakers about current trends and topics, blended with practical application to the implementation of Wilson’s programs.
- Learn from the collective experience of colleagues during sessions that encourage the sharing of experiences and ideas.
- Renew the special bonds of the trainer community and receive support from Wilson staff for your specific situation.
- Revitalize professional work with actionable information for school implementation and instruction.
This event is a special opportunity for Wilson Credentialed Trainers to continue their growth in an environment that is specifically geared toward their professional needs.
School districts and organizations with Wilson Credentialed Trainers may want to encourage their WRS certified teachers to attend the Wilson Certified Teacher Conference, held every other year. This team experience can help develop shared understanding to support sustained communication and implementation.
