Florida League of Cities Webinar Information

Source: Jan Piland
The Florida League of Cities offers free monthly Webinar training for members.
All upcoming webinars can be found on the events and training calendar.
Webinars allow multiple participants to view presenta­tions over the Internet on their computer screen from the comfort of their own office or home. You can register up to the day of the Webinar. Registrants will automatically be emailed a link prior to the start of the Webinar. Then, with a click of the mouse you are able to see the presenter’s computer screen. From there, participants can view the presentation and listen to the speaker’s comments by calling in to a designated telephone number. Any questions can be emailed or sent to the presenter using the Webinar message box that appears on your computer screen. Webinars are an excellent way to get valuable training in a short hour-long crash course – without incurring travel costs.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Webinar. System Requirements are: for PC-based attendees, Windows® 7, Vista, XP or 2003 Server; for Macintosh®-based attendees Mac OS® X 10.4.11 (Tiger®) or newer.
NOTE:  If you do not automatically receive the confirmation notice it may be because your security software thinks it is spam and is not allowing it into your email system or you may have entered your email address incorrectly during the registration process.  You will also receive another notification email the day of the webinar which contains a unique link to enable you to enter the webinar at the designated time.  If you do not receive this email please check with your in-house IT Department.
