Welcome to the CIF/IFC's National Electronic Lecture Series
The CIF/IFC offers an interactive electronic lecture series. The lectures run for approximately one hour on Wednesdays beginning at 1:30 pm Eastern and feature experts and practitioners from across Canada.
How do I participate?
The electronic lectures are free, easy to access, and user-friendly. Once registered, an email will be sent out to you providing the participation instructions. Participation requires a phone and computer with reliable internet access. If you will not have access to internet at the time of the lecture, please let us know beforehand so we can provide you with the presentation file to follow along.
What about Continuing Education Credits?
Several Provincial RPF and RFT organizations have evaluated the lecture series for their continuing education programs. The CIF also has a voluntary continuing education credit system that you can earn credits for through the lecture series. If you would like more information please don't hesitate to contact Dana Collins.
Organizations are welcome to contact us to discuss the possibility of a themed lecture series or for sponsorship opportunities.
