Our popular Coffee & Connect webinars were introduced in 2020 resulting from an immediate need for our members to connect and share summer camp planning during the 2020 COVID pandemic beginnings. Due to the success of this monthly program (formerly Coffee & Camp), the program has evolved to monthly webinars featuring experts in the field of Humane Education. Each Coffee & Connect features spotlights topics relevant to educators in the field. 

Coffee & Connect is offered the 1st Wednesday of each month, at 1pm ET.  Registration is free for members and requires pre-registration. Non-members may register for a $5 fee.
