What are ANN Webinars?
ANN webinars are “virtual” seminars that require no travel and deliver high-quality training to the comfort of your own home or office. According to Wikipedia, webinars are often referred to as “web conferencing.” “Web conferencing refers to a service that allows conferencing events to be shared with remote locations. The service allows information to be shared simultaneously, across geographically dispersed locations in nearly real-time.”
All webinars are recorded and replays videos made available to registrants. All webinars are free or at-cost to ANN members “live” and in the Training Archive.
In 2013, 470 registered for ANN’s Now That AB 60 Is Law & Effective January 1, 2014, Now What? Over 20 free or low-cost webinars in nonprofit capacity building have been offered or are planned.
Early webinars included:
- How to Get the Most Out Of the 77th Session of the Nevada Legislature
