In an effort to keep our members, the Greater Washington DC region, and the world informed and connected we are holding a series of FREE Cyber workshops for who is interested! We want to give you an outlet as we all adjust to the new norms we are faced with as a result of the escalating health concerns related to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As such, we hope you can join us. We have a great lineup of presenters who will cover a variety of interesting topics for which one (1) CPE can be earned for each webinar attended. You will need to self-certify, however, as GWDC will not be sending you a CPE certificate.
