The MCC Bookkeeper Webinar Series has been established to provide continuing education and assistance to bookkeepers with their MCC-related tasks. Bookkeepers will receive an email two weeks before the next scheduled webinar with information on the topic and a link to RSVP. Webinars will be conducted by an MCC staff member and will typically last 45 minutes, with time for participants to ask questions.

Webinars are currently scheduled to take place on the second Thursday of the month at 11:00 am. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of a webinar, please read “What is a Webinar?” to learn more. You may also wish to join a test meeting to make sure your computer is ready for a webinar.

Should bookkeepers have questions, suggestions for a webinar topic, or would like to request technical assistance from MCC IT staff prior to a webinar, contact, or call us at (800) 395-5565.
