Training via Webinars

SGMP and the Gilmer Institute of Learning offer exclusive webinars, at no charge, to SGMP members as a membership benefit. Members are welcome to attend the live webinar or watch the recording online. These high-quality industry education opportunities are eligible for pre-approved Contact Hour credits toward CGMP recertification.

Upcoming Live Events:

The SGMP National Board has returned SGMP educational webinars to a complimentary benefit of membership, meaning free registration to our members, beginning with our November 19th webinar on "A Way Forward" with Michael Dominguez, President and CEO of ALHI. Non-members can join for $20 per webinar. There are two webinars per month; that is a savings of $20/month when you attend both as a member. It is also a great opportunity for chapters to hold their own online or conference call discussion sessions with their chapter members immediately after the webinars. 

The fall 2021 and spring 2022 webinar dates will be available soon!
