In light of the spread of COVID-19, all upcoming IN-PERSON events have been switched to VIRTUAL.

In-Person

Benefit from the in-person training and networking available through these workshops and events.

In light of the spread of COVID-19 and the uncertainties presented by this extraordinary pandemic, we cannot move forward with any confidence that Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 events would be safe or permissible at that time. The good news is that we are converting several of our formerly in-person trainings to a virtual format. Events scheduled after May 2021 are currently proceeding as planned.
