VPPPA Webinars

VPPPA strives to provide training throughout the year through educational webinars. Since it is not always possible for employees to leave their worksite for a week, these online educational sessions are an excellent alternative. VPPPA webinars are usually one-hour sessions and provide a convenient way for the workforce to continue learning while on the job.

VPPPA webinars are open to members and nonmembers and require access to both a high-speed internet connection and a phone line. Registration is per computer, so VPPPA encourages attendees to invite coworkers to sit in. Please note that all times listed are Eastern Standard Time (EST) unless otherwise indicated. No refunds will be given for webinars.

Registration for each webinar will be cut off after 100 people have registered due to system constraints, so register early to guarantee a spot. If you are not able to register for a webinar due to the closing of registration, a recording of the webinar will be available at a cost. If you have any questions or would like to purchase a recording of a past webinar, please contact the Conference & Education Department by calling (703) 761-1146 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
