Zoom Webinar with Break Out Sessions
Please join our webinar to hear from panelists from each of the IFMA Florida chapters for an exciting update around the state on how organizations in their regions are performing post-Covid-19. Then get ready to engage with each other as we divide you into “Zoom Break Out Rooms” for some small group networking.
Please note that the link to the Zoom webinar will be sent separately via e-mail one day prior to the event.
In order to have the best possible experience and participate in our break out rooms, Zoom requires that you log into our webinar from a single device. Please “enable” your video and audio, so that you can participate in the break out sessions and engage with others.
