As the winter melts away and spring attempts to show up, we’ve been putting the final touches on April’s lineup of webinars. We’re mixing a little bit of the familiar with some new stuff to introduce a couple new topics and presenters.

All of our webinars this month are free and open to the public worldwide. No registration is required for any of these. To join in, simply click the “join” link below the description a few minutes before the published start time.

As always, we’ll be recording these webinars.
