Topic: Conducting Meaningful In-Person Visits Under the New Standards of Practice

WAPG is inaugurating a Webinar Series. We are hoping to conduct a Webinar on a quarterly basis to start, and then more frequently if the interest and participation is there.

We plan to have presentations on various issues related to guardianship/conservator administration and statutory and regulatory interpretation. We also want your in input on issues you would like to see addressed to the Certified Professional Guardianship/Conservatorship Board. In addition, each Webinar will offer an opportunity to discuss specific case issues you may be experiencing with experienced colleagues. Each of the Webinars will include participation by one of more WAPG board members.  When possible, we will also be seeking Continuing Education Credits, which will be announced prior to a given Webinar.
