June 2024 Webinars

Join us this month for these four free webinars!

These webinars are entirely free to anyone and don’t require registration. As long as you have an internet connection, you can click the join link below each description a few minutes before start time, and you’re in! These are intended to run short, so the content portion is typically around 15 minutes long, and then there’s a few minutes for any questions. We want you to be able to learn some new tricks without having to take a lot of time out of your busy day!

We hope you’ll be able to join us live, but if you can’t, remember that we record all our webinars. Those recordings are housed in the archive, and are available to current NBA members. If you want to watch later, just sign in with your member account, navigate to the skills area you’re looking for, and hit play! If you’re not a member and want access to training videos, checkout this page for more info about membership.

Our live webinars and archived recordings have Closed Captioning available for those who would like it. Google Meet provides this for our live webinars and Vimeo provides this service for our hosted recordings. To turn on Closed Captioning, use the button in the tool bar with a “CC” in the square.
