If you had attended the originally-scheduled conference in person, you would have only seen five lectures. However, we now can offer you the complete set of ten webinars for the same price!

Our featured speaker, Judy Russell, will present all of her talks live. They will also be recorded, so if you prefer, you may watch the videos. You can mix and match to your schedule. All other lectures will be recorded only and you can watch them at your convenience. We will send you an email to the page with the links to the recorded sessions. If you had previously registered, you will receive an email with instructions. Registration is still open until July 18th.
