We recently released our “Building on the Basics” election administration webinar training series schedule.  Due to positive feedback from county and municipal clerks regarding this method of training, we have developed a new webinar training series that focuses on the Statewide Voter Registration System.  The first webinar in our SVRS training series is:

Webinar for County and Municipal Clerks
Mapping 8.5
Wednesday, October 23, 2013, 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

The mapping features of SVRS were improved with the new SVRS version 8.5.  The Mapping 8.5 webinar will walk you through how to use the mapping features in SVRS and highlight the new improvements.  This webinar is recommended for all SVRS users that utilize the mapping features, whether you are new to SVRS or proficient.

Reference materials for the webinar have been posted on our website as an attachment.  The webcast will be posted by the Thursday following the session on the G.A.B. website for clerks to use for their own education:  http://gab.wi.gov/clerks/education-training/webinars.   The training counts toward clerk recertification whether you participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.
