SurePrep 2020 Webinar Series

SP webinar series

Immediately following the success of our first user conference last fall, the SurePrep team began planning another immersive, collaborative event for 2020. When it became clear that an in-person event would no longer be possible, we pivoted toward packing our content-rich agenda into a digital format.

We are excited to share the final product with you: a series of webinars presented by SurePrep’s top minds. Tune in for our product roadmap, new feature announcements, panels, and the ultimate two-part guide to best practices. Thank you for your flexibility, and welcome to the SurePrep 2020 Webinar Series!

These sessions will be recorded. All registrants will receive a link to the recordings. We’re unable to provide CPE for these sessions.
