Webinars and Sixty-minute Socials

We’ve launched a new regular series of AIN webinars called The Big Topic. This is an opportunity for us to gather and learn together in between face-to-face conferences and local group meetings. They start at various times to accommodate as many time zones as possible, and usually last 90 minutes. Anyone is welcome to attend, up to our current Zoom limit of 100 participants.

We usually record them, and you’ll find them posted on the AIN Youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRBK5Z3g1_ypxHlVUMg9hrBnmmscN7yvE

And yes, they will be participative, with opportunities for discussion and other contributions in lively formats, hosted by the practitioners.
