About the IARPP Webinar Series:

The IARPP web seminar series is a benefit of IARPP membership. Webinars are structured, listserv-based discussions which take place via email. The first webinar is free of charge; additional webinars have a nominal registration fee of $10.00. IARPP webinars are limited to 75 participants to allow greater opportunity for personal contact and open exchange among participants, along with facilitating a sense of shared participation and joint activity.

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, so we encourage you to register early as webinars fill up within a very short time period (1-2 days). Registration information is sent to all IARPP members via email approximately two weeks before the start, so make sure to look for the annnouncement in your inbox!
