What is a WEBside Chat?
"In the new world of technology-supported face-to-face conversations, AVBCC is taking a leading role in creating WEBside chats," explained Burt Zweigenhaft, PhD, DLitt, AVBCC Founder and Chair. He went on to say, "In the past, a fireside chat was a very intimate way to discuss and share expertise, opinions, and observations." Thereby, combining the technology of today with the traditions of the past, AVBCC has created the award-winning WEBside chat.
