Amerimold Connects continues until Friday, June 19th.

This past week many of you shared that despite Amerimold Connects offering free, limitless access to scheduled live-streaming presentations, demonstrations and commentary, on-demand educational content, access to technology supplier virtual “booths” and an online forum for the community to network, your teams need more time to take it all in due to the regular business of the day. So, we’ve extended access to the Amerimold Connects site through to this Friday, June 19th

Here is a quick recap of the available content to remind you and your team to work your way over to the Amerimold Connects site to set up that MyPlanner and GET CONNECTING!  (Perhaps, you can pick a few sessions and do a lunch-n-learn with the entire team … just an idea).

Lastly, thank you for your interest and support in what this remote event experience has to offer during these challenging times. If you have any questions, feedback or ideas, please feel free to reach out to me at cfuges@gardnerweb.com.
