Below are links to videos of live seminars from previous years that may be viewed online. There are also links to PowerPoint presentations that were used in live seminars and have since been modified for viewing online. For either format, it is not unlikely you will want to pause the presentation during the course of the seminar, especially if a subject is being discussed about which you have a particular interest. To pause or re-start presentations, simply left-click on your mouse while your cursor is anywhere on the image of the presentation.

In case you would like to attend a seminar but cannot make it at the scheduled time, one of these archived seminars may be helpful.
