webinarFree Cloud Computing Webinars
April 18 & April 26, 2011

A key part of the League’s mission is to find new ways to assist our members. We believe that finding new technology is a big part of that effort. To that end, the League has been working with IBM on a number of initiatives. One of them is LotusLive, a cloud based, collaboration tool that allows users to share information and work on topics more efficiently.

A team from IBM will host a couple of FREE informational webinars to discuss the value LotusLive can bring to municipal organizations. Please click here to register online.
