Webinars

Webinars are being scheduled - the preliminary schedule is below.  While we confirm our dates and speakers, you may sign up for more information to get complete details once they are confirmed.

Past webinars may be found at the bottom of the page, along with video recordings and handouts.

What's a webinar?

A webinar is a seminar held on the Internet. In short, it is almost like an in-person face-to-face seminar with speakers and an audience. You log in at the appointed time using your computer or tablet, then watch and listen as the speakers present their materials. Just like an actual seminar, you can ask questions for clarification.  We will record our webinars to be able to share these videos with others who cannot attend during the appointed time.

You will need:

  • A computer or tablet connected to high-speed internet
  • A speaker or headphones if you don't have a speaker in your computer or tablet already
  • The ability to receive e-mails - the actual web address of the webinar is sent by e-mail

No webinars are currently scheduled. Below you will find a list of past webinars and recordings.
