Upcoming Seminars

The following seminars are open for registration.

We have been following the development of the COVID-19 epidemic closely, and with the ever-changing and growing large ban on large-scale events and the current travel restrictions in place around the world,  we are currently canceling or rescheduling a number of our planned seminars for the first half of 2020. We understand the effects on your plans and practices and will work with members to keep you informed.  Reschedule dates will be posted when things are safe for everyone to attend.  We will continue to monitor these, and all other seminars planned and will be update members closer to the dates.  We thank you for your continued support of the FICS and we look forward to seeing everyone at a future Hands-on  Module.
