Seminars

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), along with California Governor Gavin Newsom and California public health officials, have issued guidelines for large gatherings to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and are recommending canceling events where possible. Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of both our members and our employees, we are postponing all group events, including Mid-Career and Pre-Retirement seminars and webinars, through the end of April. We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. 

We will continue to closely monitor the situation as it develops and actively communicate any updates related to this matter through our website.
