2020/2019 CLEs Available

I am very excited to announce that we now have a number of CLEs videos on the website for viewing.

The February 2021 CLE is up as are all of the 2020 and 2019 videos.

The video must play all the way to the end for credit. When the video reaches the end, the Mark Complete button will turn green. Only then, will you be able to select it.  After you select the green Mark Complete button, the system will automatically send the First Vice President an email letting her know that you have completed the CLE. Kati will email you the Certificate of Attendance. Let me know if you run into any difficulties. Thanks!
