Webinars are live online trainings with experts in the field. The advantage of webinars is that with a click of a mouse, participants have immediate access to the best minds in the field of conservation, governance and organizational management without the hassle and expense of travel. Participants simply log on to a website where they can view a slide show, chat with the instructor and participants online and download handouts. Land Trust Alliance webinars use a separate conference call to enable participants to easily ask questions during the session. Webinars are priced by connection, so we encourage you to gather your team for the training. And, as an added bonus, participants have access to the webinar recording for up to 30 days in case any of your team missed the live webinar.

"The Alliance's recent webinar and extensive resource library provided concise and detailed information regarding our annual Conservation Easement monitoring activities. The useful information has allowed us to streamline our monitoring events and reporting further aiding us in our many stewardship responsiblities with respect to the Freshwater Land Trust's conservation lands."

 

Karl E. Peters, Land Steward, Freshwater Land Trust (AL), July 2010
