Live webinars showcase exceptional presenters and panelists on critical subjects facing our profession. The format provides attendees the ability to interact by providing feedback, participating in polls, and asking questions in real time through the “chat” features. Participation is highly encouraged! (Because of the vast number of participants, attendee comments are only viewable by the facilitators and presenters.)
