Third Session: Based on availability by group 

Members who are selected will learn about the process of preparing for a webinar, best practices while speaking, overcoming the fear of speaking, and how to work with a group to present a program. The program included the following three-step process: 

  1. One-hour introduction/training presentation
  2. Members will be broken into groups of four, where they will decide on a topic and work together to create a cohesive presentation with guidance
  3. Final presentation and feedback

Once members complete this program, they will be given a CLA certificate of completion. The final presentations will be recorded and available to those who participated for sharing.
