    I'm just stumbling onto this now...any chance you will run some of these webinars again? Or if I could get a copy of one that has already been done. I'm very interested in all the webinars regarding volunteers.

    Great List of varied and interesting webinars. Please try to make this monthly list available before the month starts. There were a few webinars at the beginning of the month I missed because I didn't know about them until after they ran.

    Hi Greg, thanks for your comment! We always send out the email with the list of webinars prior to the end of the month, so if you sign up for it you're guaranteed to see them in advance.

    Hi Rhonda! We're glad you find this list helpful. We publish it every month, so keep checking back to see if any of the webinars are happening again (they aren't all run by us, so it depends on the company administering them).

    Hi, I was wondering how to get a webinar added to your site for the month of July Webinars. We are doing a Webinar - Q&A with Industry leaders. John Taylor from United Way Worldwide and Joan Hestneses from Institute on Aging. We will be discussing the current crisis, its impact on Non-Profits, and how to handle IT and technology concerns going forward. Learn tips to navigate through the fog of a crisis so you can focus on the community you serve.

    I'd love to get our organization's webinars included in this list. How would I go about that?

    This is a very useful list. Would it be possible to make a simple table or list with each month's webinars so we could print it on one or two pages for reference?

    Hi Theresa, As it stands, that's not something we're planning on doing but we're so glad you find this post helpful!

    Hi Tatiana,
    Thanks for putting out this info as a resource. I realized I put out my question on the wrong page earlier. I was wondering if you could bring back the upcoming webinars info for the last week of July? I remember seeing them yesterday and there were a couple that I was interested in but hadn't had a chance to sign up yet and now I just see one. Thank you!

    Hi Chitra, please leave your email and I can send you a screenshot of the webinars from July. (I won't approve that comment so your email will not be publicly shown, but I will see it.)
