Webinar Series Off to Strong Start

By on 1 May 2012 in Other with 0 Comments

ASPO-USA kicked off its new webinar series with two information-rich offerings in April, and more webinars on critical topics scheduled for May and June. More than 200 people participated “live” in the webinar series in its inaugural month, with many more ASPO-USA members viewing video recordings of the webinars at a later time. Early feedback suggests that both webinars thus far have been well-received

[For more details or to register for upcoming webinars, please visit the ASPO-USA Webinar Series webpage].

These webinars are already proving to be an effective way to harness the knowledge and experience of ASPO-USA’s vast network of experts. They are intended to complement other ASPO-USA information and education resources, such as our annual conference. The relative ease and convenience with which these webinars can be organized, however, provides a good opportunity to address specific issues and questions with detail and depth. A typical 90-minute session allows for extended discussion among presenters and participants.
