I registered for the "Check In" webinar and was never sent any email with information about the webinar on February 6th.  I tried to register again today, since I hadn't received the email, and still have nothing.  Guess I'll have to miss out on this one.  What a shame.

They sent out an email with the links for both the slides alone & the slides & audio to those that we able to login and be there, so they probably still have it handy to email out to those who couldn't attend.

Thank you Jennifer. I did not register, so if someone from YALSA is willing to email me the info I would be very appreciative!
