Online resources at

We are working on a major upgrade to our online resource library, where you can access all the videos and presentations from our education events. A new search function will enable you to find relevant resources by various categories, by event or by the type of resource. The goal is to create a kind of ‘one-stop-shop’ and include many other resources beyond those from our events. We’ll update you when the new library goes live.
