Present a webinar

We want you to share your knowledge with your fellow ACerS members by participating as a presenter in the ACerS Webinar Series.

If you are interested in presenting on a Technical topic reach out to Erica Zimmerman to be a potential ACerS webinar presenter.

If you are interested in presenting on a Professional Development topic reach out to Yolanda Natividad to be a potential ACerS webinar presenter.

We do ask that your proposed topic is educational and not promotional in nature.
