Webinar Wednesdays

FFTA will offer webinars to members on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 2:00 p.m. Eastern (1:00 p.m. Central, 12:00 p.m. Mountain, 11:00 a.m. Pacific and 10:00 a.m. Alaska). Webinars are each 1 hour and 15 minutes long, with the last 15 minutes reserved for an interactive question answer session with the presenter(s).

These webinars are extensions of the FFTA Annual Conference. We seek to take some of the most popular workshops from the greatest variety of topics and share that information more broadly with FFTA Members. Here, you will experience impactful workshops from the convenience of your own office. Join us monthly and advance your professional development.

Keep an eye out for email invitations about 30 days before each webinar date for a link to sign-up.
