ALA is offering an exciting schedule of one-hour webinars for 2020. Topics cover technical subjects, legal and insurance, firm management/marketing, and conversations with experts in the field. Our presenters were chosen from past seminars with strong survey ratings, or who come highly recommended from industry sources.

Credits can only be provided for attending live webinars unless we announce the availability of a quiz after you view a webinar recording.  You can view informational videos after the fact; however, viewing these videos does not qualify for credit, unless there is mention of a quiz being available.  

For those who attend the live webinars, at the completion of each webinar, ALA will email a certificate of completion. Most webinars are approved for 1 LU/HSW. All webinars are ALA and AIA approved.   
The webinars are usually offered on the second Tuesday of each month from 11:00 - 12:00 Central. Please see below and mark your calendars for the webinars coming up through July. Registration for each webinar will be sent by email or you can check our homepage under the Upcoming Events. Typical cost for members is $15, non-members $30. Some webinars have special pricing due to length or if a speaker fee is involved.
