movedDear Partner in Education,

We are pleased to announce the upcoming move to our new training space this fall. We are excited that after 4 years, The Network Room Professional Development Cooperative has grown from a passion to empower educators in the southland with the highest quality professional development to a nationally-recognized business model serving nearly two dozen school districts in the south suburbs, city of Chicago and nationwide.

The Network Room opened our doors for business in May 2009. At that time, true to our mission, we welcomed educators, administrators and clinicians to our facility on a weekly basis for professional development training. And yet, over the course of these four years, something wonderful happened! You taught us something invaluable that we certainly didn't expect to learn. You wanted the same exceptional service, quality PD and hands-on expertise you'd come to expect from The Network Room, but you wanted it delivered at your schools, in your classrooms and tailored to fit your school's culture and curriculum. We heard YOU and your message encouaged us to see professional development in a different way over the past three years as the requests for our "push-in" trainings nearly tripled.

We have experienced substantial growth over the past several years and that is in no small way related to the success you, our partners in education, have experienced as a result.

Despite our new focus and changes to the delivery of your PD, we want to emphasize things that will not change:

  • Our fee structure will not change
  • "Pull-out" professional development services will still be available
  • Our executive and office staff will not change
  • Our existing phone number, fax number and email addresses will continue to be operational even after the move
  • Our committment to YOU will never change

Our new training facility is currently under construction. Please stay tuned for additional information regarding a grand opening date. If you have any questions about this exciting news and what it will mean for you, please contact us at any time. We are grateful to you not only for giving us the opportunity to provide you with professional development but for you loyalty and friendship over the years which has greatly enriched our relationship. We are confident that our new space and old friends will create a dynamic synergy that will continue to bolster your success.
