About the IARPP Webinar Series:

The IARPP webinar series is provided as a benefit of IARPP membership. Webinars are structured, listserv-based discussions. The first webinar any member registers for is free of charge; additional webinars have a nominal registration fee of $10.00. Webinars are currently limited to 75 participants. The limit on the number of participants along with the discussion structure allows these seminars to provide greater opportunity for personal contact and open exchange among webinar participants, along with facilitating a sense of shared participation and joint activity. Registration information is sent to all IARPP members via email approximately two weeks before a webinar begins. Registration is on a first come, first served basis, so we encourage you to register early as webinars can fill up within a very short time period (1-2 days).
