Winter Webinar Recordings + Academy Courses!

Published: 15 February 21

If you weren’t able to make the Winter Webinars, we hosted in December then you’re in luck as they are now available through your ABYA/YDSA Academy Portals. We had amazing feedback from the first batch of webinars were members not only appreciated the content and deliver but to be able to participate in training from the comfort of their own home.
