New Webinar Provider - Please Read

We have switched providers for our webinar services.  We are now using GoToWebinar by Citrix.  Due to this change, our webinar registration process has changed.  You will now need to register on the GoToWebinar site separately after registering, and paying if you are a non-member, on the MABioN site.  You will receive an email after registering for a webinar with the link to register at the GoToWebinar site.  If you do not receive this email, check your spam/junk folder first, then email (support@mabion.org) us if you still don’t see the email.
