GCAAR CE classes now available through live streaming

In the meantime, GCAAR will be able to offer live-streamed Continuing Education (CE) credits for Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia using the Zoom platform. Take a look at our calendar for a list of classes and webinars offered through this platform.
