As a result of both the Annual Conference and Small Town Conference being canceled this year, League staff had to find creative ways to continue to provide educational opportunities to our members. This need brought about the implementation of virtual CMO opportunities.

Throughout the fall, MML offered seven different webinars that members were invited to attend virtually via Zoom. Each webinar offered 3 CMO elective credits, and most cost $25 to attend.

These webinars have been recorded and are available on-demand for those that might have missed the registration deadlines.

To register for any of the following webinars, please complete the attached registration form and return to the MML office to receive the appropriate access links.
