Deadline to Register: Wednesday, April 29

Minnesotans routinely rely on telecommunications to navigate modern life. However, during the COVID19 outbreak, routine technology became a critical lifeline during the stay at home lifestyle mandated by the pandemic.  This CLE will discuss the response of the State, carriers and educators to the extraordinary circumstances.
