The University of Nevada Las Vegas is offering live, college-level classes online featuring UNLV faculty and leading industry experts. Each one-hour webinar is designed as a standalone learning experience, and attendees are eligible for continuing education units.

Upcoming classes include Hotel Contract Negotiations (May 13) and On-Site Management for Meetings (May 15). Past sessions have covered meeting planning logistics, risk and legal issues, and exhibitions.

Participants need an Internet hookup. They listen through either a toll-free phone line or their computers and can type questions into a chat box.

The webinars are scheduled on weekdays from 9-10 a.m. and 2-3 p.m. PDT.

CMI readers who register using the MeetingsNet code receive a 20 percent discount off the $99 fee. To receive the discount, type “MNPenton” into the Group Discount Box on checkout.

Webinars are recorded, and registrants view the archived session as often as they like.
