Since its inception just over two years ago, the CMT Association's Educational Web Series has been one of the most popular member services among members. So popular that we've frequently received requests from non-members to attend these webcast events on many occassions. Up until this point, Educational Web Series webcasts have remained exclusively for members in good standing. Now, the CMT Association is opening the CMT Association Educational Web Series up to all who wish to attend! For a small fee of $25 US per webcast, non-members may attend the webcasts of their choosing. A listing of our next upcoming webcasts are listed below. 8/17/11 - US Financial Update for August 2011 (12:00 PM EST) featuring John Kosar, CMT
