The health and safety of our community is always our top priority. As we all navigate through these unprecedented times, our businesses are faced with unfamiliar challenges and decisions. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and are making every effort to continue to support business leaders and professionals through these difficult times.

All face-to-face programming remains suspended.  We have made the decision to move all our programs over to a real-time, online environment to allow participants and their organizations to continue with their professional development. Our team will be reaching out to everyone registered in programs impacted by these changes. 

We remain as committed as ever to support your professional development needs. In collaboration with our partners, faculty and thought leaders, we have developed a complimentary webinar series. Information on upcoming sessions, as well as access to recordings of previous webinars can be found here.

The safety of our community remains our top priority and we appreciate your understanding as we navigate these challenging circumstances. We thank you for your cooperation and support during this time of uncertainty. If you have any questions or concerns, please email and our team will work closely with you to find the best solution for your educational needs.
