2021 Webinar Series

ALCM webinars are live online workshop sessions. The presenter’s live video and a handout can be seen on the computer screen. Registrants can communicate if they like by typing into a chat box which is also seen on the screen. Typically, ALCM webinars consist of a 45-minute presentation and 10 minutes of questions. Registrants receive an emailed link and instructions to attend the webinar an hour or more prior to the workshop.

Webinars in 2021 will be offered in four separate series, which may be purchased at the prices listed below, or purchased as a full-year webinar package—$95 members/$190 nonmembers—a 15% savings that includes automatic registration for all sixteen webinars throughout the year.

You may register at any time during 2021 and receive recordings of the live webinars which are completed. In 2022 the webinars will revert to the regular price of $25 members/$39 non-members per webinar.

All webinars are on Fridays at 2:00 pm Eastern, unless otherwise noted.
