Live Webinars

*At this time, the 2020 Spring Webinars will not be live, but instead recorded and made available to our members free of charge. Sign in to MyNACUFS.org to further grow your distance learning opportunities!

Live webinars have many advantages as a distance learning option. Connect with other collegiate foodservice professionals from the comfort of your campus, while having a real-time option for asking questions and interacting with other participants. Webinars save you money and time that you would have otherwise spent on travel, and often allow you the opportunity to broadcast the presentation to all your staff at once. Most NACUFS webinars allow for questions during the webinar, as well as contact information to follow up with the presenters after the program.
