Since so much in the industry has changed lately, NAWLA has recognized that its members and the industry are looking for ways to learn about current issues.
Webinars have been particularly effective lately, as companies have cut back both their travel and training budgets. The webinars allow employees to get the information they need without having the time and expense of an onsite program. It also has enabled companies to have multiple employees to attend, which always helps with the takeaways and long-term implementation of the knowledge.
Note that most NAWLA webinars take place starting at 9 am Pacific / 10 am Mountain / 11 am Central / Noon Eastern Time.
Check out NAWLA's upcoming webinars and past webinars below to get involved!
