State Society Leadership Tutorials

For many years, the AARC has had a workshop that brings together leadership from the state societies to learn about aspects of managing their organizations and learning more about the programs and projects of the AARC. For 2015, we are electing to provide you with online tutorials that many individuals in your state society can watch and learn from. Please let us know if there are topics or programming that will help you better meet the needs of your affiliate members.
