    A couple of our staff would like to participate in the Thursday (2/12/15) webinar on “Build your best auction catalog ever”; however, we have a scheduling conflict and cannot make the time it is being offered.

    Is the webinar recorded so that we could access it after-the-fact? Will it be offered again in the near future?

    Thanks,
    Elysabeth
