September 2023 Webinars

In addition to scheduling two webinars this month, we’d also love your feedback on our webinar programming! To assist us in better serving you with online education, please take a few minutes to complete this survey. Your answers will help us make improvements to NBA’s online training offerings so your time and consideration in providing feedback is greatly appreciated.

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.
