In lieu of the conference that was originally scheduled to be held at Virginia Tech in April, Apra-Virginia is excited to now offer a series of live webinars! Beginning on April 8, we will offer regularly scheduled webinars covering a variety of topics.
Current Apra-VA, DC, MD, and Carolinas members will be able to attend the webinar for free. Current Apra-VA members will have access to every webinar recording for the remainder of the year. If you are a non-member, the fee is $25 and will cover membership for the remainder of the calendar year as well.
The schedule is still being fleshed out, and with help from sponsors, we hope to offer this long-term. If you have topics you would like to hear about, please let Kristin Richardson, President of Apra-VA, or Kristen Johnson, Program Chair, know and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
Apra-Virginia is proud to announce that the next speaker in our spring webinar series will be Andrea Kennedy, Data Integrity and Training Specialist at Virginia Tech.
"There must be a better way!" If you’ve said that at one time or another when working in Excel, then this session is for you! We will go over Excel data clean‐up strategies, useful formulas for comparing spreadsheets, and a crowd‐favorite, pivot tables! In addition, we will show a few other Excel tips & tricks that are sure to save you time and energy.
