Members e-Learning

GlobalSkin is committed to supporting its members through unique learning opportunities. As part of this effort, we host Members’ Only e-Learning sessions four times per year.

Session topics are based on needs and interests communicated to us through member surveys. Each session includes a 45-minute presentation with 15-minutes for group discussion. Join us to share your own experiences and bring your questions to the presenter. 

The presenter and slides will be visible on the videoconference.  You can follow along, choosing to share your video if you wish, when participating in the discussion.
