CHICAGO - As travel costs rise and staff time gets tight, webinars offer value for delivering continuing education to your audience. The Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) is committed to creating webinars on emerging issues in technical services areas and practical information. “How to Present a Webinar,” the first in a series of “how to’s,” will train potential presenters on developing and presenting a webinar.

The webinar is presented by Keri Cascio, an experienced trainer and member of the ALCTS Education Committee. Topics include understanding the GoToWebinar software, choosing your subject focus, planning your webinar and keeping your attendees interested.

“How to Present a Webinar” will be presented LIVE three times in March:
Session 1: Monday, March 16th at 2 p.m. CDT – ALCTS Members Only
Session 2: Monday, March 23rd at 2 p.m. CDT
