AACE International announced the first three topics and presenters in a series of eight technical presentation webinars offered under the banner: Total Cost Management Today. The eight 75-minute webinars will be delivered live over the Internet. Registrants may submit questions via text messaging to the expert TCM practitioners but also archived for future viewing. The webinars are without charge for the educational component but members desiring re-certification credit must pay a fee of $10 while non-members will pay a fee of $25. Advanced registration is required to participate in the webinars and attendance may be limited to no more than 1,000 participants. Approximately a week after the original webinar, archived versions of the presentation may be downloaded for a fee of $25 for members and $40 for non-members. The archival download fee includes re-certification credits.
The Total Cost Management Today series presenters and topics were selected by the Marketing Advisory Committee, chaired by Mark Grotefend. “We believe that the Total Management Today series will allow us to reach a broader spectrum of current and potential members. We anticipate that this will become a yearly series and we will carefully examine the future frequency of the TCM Today webinars.” Grotefend noted that AACE International may offer additional webinars during 2014 on other topics of interest but that those webinars won’t necessarily be under the TCM Today banner.
“While other ad hoc webinars on other topics of interest may be offered, we wanted our members and potential webinar sponsors to be assured that we will have a minimum of eight quality technical presentations,” Grotefend concluded.
The first three of the scheduled eight webinars scheduled for 2014 are:
