NOTE: We use the Citrix GoToWebinar platform for online presentations. You will be required to download a small secure program onto your computer or laptop in order to view and hear the webinars. You may need access to the ‘Admin’ user on your system to say yes to the download. After you register, you will receive an email about the system requirements. Organizations should check with your IT department if you are having difficulty as they may need to exempt the program from firewall settings. You can also watch on a tablet or mobile phone.
