In our July survey for supporters, we asked you what webinar topics you would like to see. Finding out how PR works in other countries, understanding the nuts and bolts of the PR systems for Canada, how to talk to the public most effectively about PR were the most frequently requested topics. As a result, we have a full schedule of webinars you can register for this fall and more planned for the winter.

We hope you can join us on Sunday September 24 at 7 PM EST – register at GoToWebinar!
