Internet Tip: Find A Seminar On-Line

Got a last minute need for CPE? Can't find a training program on leadership skills in your area? Have a new staff member who can benefit from a session on negotiation skills?

A new website, www.seminarinformation.com claims over 200,000 conferences and seminars listed on line, which can be searched by topic and by region. Detailed information on the seminar includes dates,location, prices, who should attend, and a description of the program. You can even register right on line for the seminar.

The site is sponsored by Seminar Information Services, Inc., a seminar "locator" company in business since 1981 to help businesses and professionals identify where and when different seminars were being held.

This is a great reference guide, but buyer beware. There is no criteria for ranking the effectiveness of the seminars or conferences, so use it only as a first step in your research of what's out there.
