I was unable to register for this event--apparently it is full. I just received the invitation for it today! Is there any way the registration can be extended? Thank you.

Hey Sharon! Thanks for the shout-out for our ILCA free webinars! I am a huge fan of Science & Sensibility Chloe -- the ILCA webinar will be available as a recording; that will require a small fee. If you need CERPs, tha too requires a small fee. Chloe -- please do contact the ILCA office directly; the general e-mail is info@ilca.org. If you have any problems, let me know, and I'll see if I can't nudge along some help. My email is elizabethbrooks@ilca.org

In the past, I was able to buy recordings of lectures for a fee, and then show them to a group of IBCLCs who received cerps for attending. Is this still an option? In general, is there still an opportunity to have group attendence to webinar breastfeeding lectures? Thanks, Leslie Wolff
