About the Event

District Licensing Committees (DLC's) exercise an important role in their communities. These workshops provide an opportunity to up-skill in a supportive environment and to share and learn with peers and colleagues.

Webinars are free and we encourage all DLC members, DLC secretaries and hearing staff to attend.
