MAC Webinar Series

MAC Webinar Series

A lot of things have changed this year, including how we’re able to offer our Educational Meetings. Instead of offering full-day, in-person sessions at Tufts in North Grafton for the Whole Cat Workshop, All About Dogs and Hot Topics, we are moving to a calendar of more frequent, bite size, virtual sessions.

Meeting Format

Each part of the MAC Webinar Series will be about an hour long, hosted on Zoom and will center on one topic with generally one presenter, depending on the subject matter.  Meetings in 2020 to 2022 will be free to attend (though advance registration will be required) and open to MAC members and non-members alike.  In short, we want to be able to offer great content to as many interested animal welfare professionals and volunteers as possible.
