2020 Upper Mississippi River Webinar Series
2020 in-person conference has been cancelled. Please join us again in Moline in 2021!
Instead, we are offering a series of one-hour webinars on topics that our Upper Mississippi River stakeholders will find informative and thought provoking. Registered attendees will receive a link via email to join the webinar prior to each session. Continuing Education Certificates available following each session upon request.
