2021 Course Registration

At the moment  – due to Covid- it is not clear whether the Aug 21-23, 2021 course will be live (with a webcast for those who do not want to travel) vs. an online course as was done this year. For this reason, pricing for the “live” course and the webcast course will be the same. Registrants for either the Live Course or Webcast will be able to view the presentations via the webcast. Stay tuned for developments.
