    So, How Does This Work?
    This Virtual Institute Program will be a series of 2-hour interactive video webinars offered each week on Wednesdays in June and July hosted by a different Institute Director using Zoom software.

    Each webinar will require separate registration and will hold 100 seats each. At this time, we will NOT be adding additional seats nor offering replays of these sessions.

    Registration for each will open up the Thursday prior to the webinar start date in a special E-News Update from IIMC. For example - registration for the June 3rd webinar will be announced and open on May 28th.

    Each webinar is $50.00USD. Payment will be made using PayPal (no PayPal account required). IIMC will be accepting online credit card registrations only - no checks will be accepted. Staff will be unable to manually register any participant.

    IIMC will NOT issue refunds of any kind for any of these sessions, so please be sure to check your calendar prior to registering. Registrations are non-transferable.

    Webinars will be 2 hours each running from 10:00am-12:00pm PST (1:00pm-3:00pm EST) and will earn 1 CMC Education or 1 MMC Advanced Education point upon completion of a require learning assessment. Certificates of completion will be issued to those that complete the learning assessment successfully.

    These webinars will be conducted using Zoom software. These will be interactive video webinars so participants will be required to have their camera on and be seen for the entire 2-hour session. No exceptions will be made to this requirement.

    This program will stop being offered at the end of the 8-week series. At that time, IIMC and the Institute Directors will re-evaluate and determine if there is a need to run future programs.

    Please reach out to Assistant Director of Professional Development Ashley DiBlasi at [email protected] with any questions regarding this program.

    Stay tuned for a special e-blast next Thursday, May 28th to register for Session #1!
