Hello PLC, and welcome to the PLC member portal! This site will be our new hub for signups, hours tracking and other PLC business. The landing page for all links is the President’s Leadership Council Webcourses page. Here, you can find links to useful tools like the Signup Genius homepage, our slack channel, the most-updated hours log, the Google Calendar, member info and the E-Board Google Drive. The hours tab will be updated periodically, so be sure to check back often for new information.

The tool we will be using to post, organize and sign up for events is Signup Genius. Please continue to monitor the Signup Genius page for new event postings and sign up for those events that are already available. Be sure to carefully read the event description and comments before signing up to ensure that you are properly informed for each event.
