    Enjoy the convenience and cost-efficiency of a webinar – watch the speaker’s slide presentation on the internet while listening by telephone or through your computer’s microphone and speakers (VoIP). There is no limit to the number of attendees from your agency who may participate at your site using one phone line and a computer with internet access.

    Prior to the webinar, a Zoom Webinar link will be e-mailed to you. You will need to click on this link to access the webinar, a dial-in number and an access code to listen in via telephone. You will also be sent any pertinent handouts if available, the sign-in sheet, and evaluation link.


    There will not be a recording offered for this education.


    Non-Members – Payment in full is required upon registration.

    Members – Outstanding invoices 30 days after an event date will incur a $25 late fee per registration.

    Registrations may not be shared between agencies or multiple people. The agency’s registration covers the access of only one phone line/computer access to the webinar. Multiple site/person participation for your agency will require a separate registration fee for each connection. Please note: if your agency has sent in 1 registration but 3 people from your agency register through the Zoom link, your agency will be invoiced for the additional 2 registrations. The handouts will be emailed to you to the email address you provide. Please feel free to provide an additional email address as a backup.


    Cancellations must be in writing and received by MHCA on or before Tuesday, July 28, 2020 to receive a refund less a $25 cancellation fee (per registration). No refunds for cancellations made after the cancellation deadline or for no-shows.
