A webinar is a “web seminar”. It allows people to connect online to view a live presentation, which includes audio and video. Webinars also allow for interaction between the attendees and the presenter such as a question and answer time or polling.

The biggest advantage of a webinar is convenience. We know that time and money is valuable. CEC will solve some of these issues by providing more webinars to the MCA membership. You can attend a webinar straight from your desk at work.  More than one employee can share in on the same webinar.
