We are pleased to announce the schedule for the 2015-2016 Northern Grapes Project Webinar Series! We are looking forward to yet another great webinar season and hope to “see” many of you at the webinars!

Look for an email coming shortly that will contain more information, including registration information, for the December 8th webinar. This year, instead of running from November – April, the webinars will run from December – May.

Please feel free to forward this email to anyone you think might be interested in the webinar series.

Also, a note regarding operating systems and WebEx – WebEx will no longer be supporting the following operating systems:

· Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, Mac OS X 10.6

This means that WebEx users will be unable to join or start WebEx meetings, or use any other WebEx application from computers that use these operating systems starting July 14, 2015. Please upgrade computers to a supported operating system so you can continue to use WebEx without interruption.
