Thoughtful Thursdays: a monthly webinar series for GA MGEVs brought to you by the State Program Office

During our monthly webinar (usually the second Thursday from 2-2:30 pm), UGA specialists share updates on a variety of horticulture topics with MGEVs. We use Zoom for these sessions so MGEVs, trainees, Extension agents and staff can join in wherever they are in the state. Be sure that you are using the most current version of Zoom in order to access the live sessions. Here is a tutorial from Zoom for how to update to the latest version.

MGEVs, we hope you are able to join in for the Thoughtful Thursday sessions of 2021. The link to the live Zoom session will be shared via email a few days before. If you can’t attend the live sessions, you can catch the recordings through your MGLOG profile. Then, make sure you record this continuing education opportunity in MGLOG. These 30 minute sessions are entered as 0.50 hours of CE. Be sure to include the 0 before the decimal point so that the system saves the entry correctly. Learn more about continuing education on our webpage.
