The Conference Planning Committee is pleased to announce the following set of virtual webinars for our members. These webinars will be held from September 2021 through February 2022. This webinar series, which will be offered through zoom, will take the place of the 2021 in-person Annual Conference that was cancelled due to the impact of the pandemic. These webinars are free to all attendees.
Our plan is to return to an in-person Annual Conference in the fall of 2022. If you have topics and/or speakers you would like to recommend for 2022, please write to the Conference Planning Committee at [email protected]. Thank you.
