Professional Development Week (PDW)

March 30, 2020

Important Update:  Professional Development Week (PDW 2020) Cancelled

To our valued affiliates, attendees, sponsors, suppliers, speakers and dedicated volunteers, we cannot thank you enough for your support over the years, and for your patience and understanding during these uncertain times.

As the current situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve and after extensive deliberations and considerations for the health and safety of everyone in our community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Professional Development Week (PDW) 2020, scheduled for May 20-22.

All passes purchased for this year’s event will be valid for PDW 2021, which is scheduled for May 12-14, 2021.  Should you have questions and wish to discuss further, please contact

Please continue to consult our website for ongoing updates.

We look forward to bringing the community back together later in 2020 with new learning and networking opportunities.

About PDW

Each year, DPI holds its annual 3-day Professional Development Week (PDW), a premier training event for IM/IT professionals. PDW is attended by approximately 1,000 delegates ranging from technical analysts and policy makers to senior managers who all share a common goal: self-development.

Delegates attend PDW for its effective mix of technology and management sessions where they can gain insight into the business, technology and people sides of IM and IT.  PDW provides insight into current technology and management trends, public sector IM and IT directions and tools and methods to survive and thrive in an increasingly complex environment.  All this coupled with excellent networking opportunities, and superb social and dinner events.  We are confident that PDW is the best value for your training dollar and we strongly encourage employees to make this part of their annual training plans and for managers to endorse their participation.
