We’re really excited about the feedback that we’ve been getting from those who have been attending our free webinars. Our goal with these free, fifteen minute webinars is to continue providing information and educational content to those of you working in the field of producing accessible media.

Each month we are doing two free, short webinars and we hope to soon add a third to the lineup. Additionally, we’ve begun planning a much longer program that will allow presenters to get further in depth with their topic. In the meantime, we’d like to invite any and all who have an internet connection to join us on our June rotating topic webinar and our July Formats Friday webinar.

Each webinar is limited to twenty-five people on a first-come-first basis. If you’d like to join either of the two upcoming topics, use the following information to get involved.

Quick reminder: for those of you who are members and weren’t able to make previous webinars, you can watch all of the recorded sessions by signing in to your member account and navigating to the “Webinars Archive” in the main menu.
