SILC-NET Presents… A National Teleconference & Webinar:

SPIL Development: Preparing Your SPIL and Recommendations from the SPIL Revision Committee

August 29, 2018; 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. Eastern

** We regret to announce that this training has been cancelled.  ACL is planning to provide new information on the forthcoming SPIL instrument and instructions.  They have asked us to withhold trainings on SPIL development and the new SPIL instrument until they release that information. While we believe that this is an important time for trainings on SPIL development, we have agreed to cancel this event until ACL has an opportunity to communicate with the SILCs about plans for next year’s SPIL.  Registration fees will be automatically re-funded.  Registrants do not need to take further action to cancel or receive a refund.  We regret any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
