Webinar Information

What’s a webinar? Wikipedia says it’s a "neologism (new word) to describe a specific type of conference, typically one way…" In January 2010, the Insurance Board began its web conferencing series in order to reach participants from Maine to Hawaii with critical training for church leaders. That’s better than a "webinar" because our conferences are interactive. You can talk, chat and respond to questions. It’s free. All you need is your PC and an internet connection.

Recorded sessions are available.  See the list below.
