Two Sites to Host APRA Int'l Virtual Seminar : "Taming the Wild Internet"

Have you heard about APRA virtual seminars? They're real-time presentations by top research experts, broadcast over both Internet and phone hook-ups to participating groups nationwide. The technology allows for live Q&A from seminar participants.

Recognizing that the program fee may be too big a stretch for some of our members' budgets, APRA-NW is pleased to announce that two of our member institutions, Clark College in Vancouver, and University of Washington in Seattle will both host this virtual seminar.

APRA NW members are invited to attend this event free-of-charge. The fee for non-members is $10. Seating is limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible.

When: Wednesday , March 10 , 2004
8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. (followed by 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. lunch at Vancouver location)
