Educational Events


NFAIS offers a wide variety of opportunities for professional development, encompassing webinars, seminars, workshops, roundtables and our annual conference. Our educational events provide professionals with a targeted and flexible means to advance, change or refocus careers and position organizations for future growth.

NFAIS Webinars are usually 90 minutes in length and provide the listener with information and discussion on a particular aspect of information accessibility.

NFAIS Seminars, Workshops and Roundtables are sources of information that can be attended both on-site or virtually, providing a wider accessibility to the information being disseminated. NFAIS webinars and virtual seminars are recorded and archived so that individuals with a time or date conflict can take advantage of these programs at a later date.
