Upcoming Webinars:
Each class listed below has its own unique link. Please double check your webinar date to ensure the link you click matches the class you plan to attend. If you have not already registered with us to attend a specific class, please do so here. Your registration on our website helps us to gauge public interest in these topics.  Thank you for registering for each class separately.

Workshop Handouts & Resources:

Please visit our Workshop Materials page to access resources for each workshop including the agenda, handouts, and copies of the slide presentations.  None of these materials are required, but they can be useful for a deeper understanding of the information that will be presented.

Handy Tips for Using GoToWebinar:

  • After you register through GoToWebinar, you will receive a confirmation email with directions on how to join the webinar as well as information about system requirements to avoid any connection issues.
  • You will need a computer and/or a smart phone device to view the presentation. We highly recommend doing a system check to make sure your device will work for the class.
  • Audio: Headphones are recommended for the best quality audio.  Once the webinar has loaded on your computer, select either “Telephone” or “Mic and Speakers” from the “Audio” section of the GoToWebinar control panel.  If you select “Telephone”, you will see the webinar access code and audio pin that you must use once you’ve called in by phone.   We recommend calling in for audio if your internet connection is not strong or if at any point during the webinar you lose audio from your computer.
  • The phone number to call will be a long distance number. If you choose to call in for audio, consider using a mobile phone if your land-line may be charged long distance fees. However, using a land line will give you a better quality audio than using a cell phone.
  • You will need to download the free software from GoToWebinar the first time you use it.
  • This happens automatically (with your permissions), once you click on the webinar link close to the time of the class. If this is your first time using GoToWebinar on your device, please try to start the process 10-15 minutes before the class start time to ensure that any issues can be resolved in time.  You can get more information on this process and troubleshooting tips in this handy guide.
  • It is recommended that you close other applications and open tabs and windows on your device, when accessing the webinar, to improve the quality of your connection. If you are able to use a wired internet connection instead of WiFi, you will have a more stable connection.
