"Power Tools for Coalitions" Webinars

The United States Breastfeeding Committee hosts this series of bi-monthly webinars as part of its training, technical assistance, and capacity building support for the network of breastfeeding coalitions across the United States. Webinars are held every two months (in odd numbered months) on the third Wednesday of the month from 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET. 

Access Info

Access to these webinars is open to all interested breastfeeding coalition members, as well as others involved in forming or leading nonprofit organizations in the breastfeeding field. Topic/speaker details are posted 1-2 weeks before each session on this page and in the Coalitions Learning Connection. The recordings and presentation materials from all past sessions are archived below.

Register for the webinar series

NOTE: To streamline access, these webinars are set up in GotoWebinar as a series. You only need to register for the series once, and you will then receive auto-reminders of each session with the topic/speaker details. Even though you may not be able to attend every webinar session live, the series registration will still send you auto-reminders so that you have easy updates on the topic and links to the live webinar and archives.
