How does it work?
After you register you will be sent instructions, including your private link to view the webinar online. You will need to be connected to the Internet (high speed connection recommended) and turn on your speakers. You can also join via telephone to listen to the presentation. Using a headset works best (but is not required) - here's my favorite. Be sure to join about 15 minutes prior to the start time to ensure everything is working correctly. Also be sure to correctly calculate your time zone.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

I would love to participate in the webnars but due to my hearing I would not be able. Do you ever hold these with closed caption or in print which would give me an oppurtunity?

Bob - unfortunately they are not available in closed-captioning, sorry.
