Please note: Due the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, AHMA East Texas has made the decision to hold webinars for the remainder of 2020. We will consider live meetings when the time is optimal and we have a colcation to meet. We also understand the difficult for some to pay before the webinar due to accounting policies.
