How The Program Works

You will register once, there’s a one-time fee, and once you register you may sign up for any webinar you like. There is no per webinar fee. Make sure to save the confirmation email you receive after registration – this will contain a link to your “season ticket” – the page where you will be able to access all the webinars in the series. You do not need to sign up for the webinars in advance.
