    At the request of several registrants, and given the timing of the ViC, access to the recordings is being extended to one month rather than just one week.

    That means that when you register for the ViC, you will have access to the recordings of the presentations until February 25th, 2020.  

    This allows you to attend your Burns Night Celebration without missing out on the learning that is being offered. 

    Access will also be extended for the downloadable handouts as well.

    Speakers are now confirmed for Scottish ViC 2020. The event takes place on Saturday, January 25th, 2020 from 8:30 am. 

    Registration opens in the fall. All 7 presentations for just $99cad. This allows access to the recordings for 1 full week following the ViC.

    Instead of having our Q&A in a closed Facebook group, we can use the Forum on this website to ask questions and have them answered by the speakers. As always, the Q&A will open immediately following the presentation.
