What is a webinar?
A webinar is an interactive online "meeting" event that allows our members from across the nation to participate together live. Attendees will be able to listen to a speaker, view a slideshow presentation, submit questions and more.
If you wish to attend one of our free webinars, you will need to submit a separate registration to reserve your seat for each webinar. You will receive an email with a link to click when it is time to join the webinar.
The only requirement is an internet connection. A free app is offered by GoToMeeting for those who wish to join our webinars by iOS devices (iPhone, iPad). A dial-in number will be available for those who wish to have their audio delivered by phone instead of through their speakers.
