Professional Development Academy: IIMC Leadership Webinar Series


The IIMC Leadership Webinars can be taken individually or in a series format of all fourteen. It has been noted that each is beneficial and collectively they are a game-changer for Clerks facing increased complexity, constrained resources, and the growing need to do more with less. See the calendar below for the 14 individual topics for 2023. 

Webinars each cost $75, or the series of all 14 webinars may be purchased for $900. Each webinar is expected to run for 90 minutes, on a Thursday morning, with a short quiz after.
