National CASA Association Training Calendar

2018 WebEx Series for Member Programs

National CASA has organized a regular schedule of WebEx sessions to provide more predictable opportunities for dialogue and training with our member programs around specific topics. These sessions will involve community calls or webinar trainings and will always be from 10-11 a.m. Pacific time, on a general pattern of every other Friday (with some exceptions due to the March conference or longer months).

The schedule will be regularly updated as topics and related materials are added.

If you have questions or suggestions about these sessions, please contact us through Member Services at
