GCAAR CE classes now available through live streaming

Given the recent executive orders in both Maryland and DC temporarily ceasing all non-essential business activities, GCAAR will continue to postpone its in-person classes and events until the orders are lifted. 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.
