The Association recently hosted two very insightful webinars.

The first one was presented by our Associate Partner, Communications Essentials LLC. It was a great session that helped us understand the importance of Language Justice and how we can create steps for inclusive services.

The second one was presented by Learning Genie. They gave us insight on "Boosting In-Kind Using Continuous Quality Improvement Model." We explored innovative strategies to enhance in-kind contributions using their Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) model.

The recordings can be found in our Learning Management System (LMS) by clicking below.
