These important and informative webinars will provide the exact same live training as the in-person seminars including the same valuable information as provided by the same presenters.  As these are popular events, prior attendance rules will continue to apply.  All employees will only be able to attend one (1) complete webinar session, one (1) time in their career. And, when live seminars do safely return, employees who attended these webinars will not be permitted to register and attend the live seminar. 

Prior eligibility criteria will also remain consistent. One (1) attendance is open to any employee who  

  • is at least 50 years of age and  
  • eligible to retire in 5 years 

Please contact the Office of Human Resources if you are interested in attending by emailing hr@oswego.edu.  Please keep in mind that there are a limited amount of seats available to all SUNY wide employees.
