The AKC Education Webinar Series provides an opportunity for Clubs to learn more about the resources AKC has to offer.
The last Wednesday of every month will bring a new topic covering misconduct, making your show an event, social media and marketing, tax laws and much more. There is no limit to the number of club members that may attend. During the webinars, you will be able to ask questions and participate in open discussion.
Do you have an idea for a topic you would like covered as part of the AKC Education Webinar Series? Tell us about it here.
Please Note: Webinars will sometimes be aired on days that do not fall on the last Wednesday of the month. Additionally, while most webinars air at 8:00pm ET, some do not. Please see each webinar for exact times. Finally, while every effort is made to keep the date and time of a webinar once it is listed, webinars may be rescheduled due to unforeseen issues. If a webinar must be rescheduled, we strive to give registrants as much notice as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
