A NOTE ABOUT RECORDING EVENTS AT WISR: As part of WISR’s pursuit of accreditation and development of content for our online learning courses, it is important that we record seminars, which can be accessed ONLY by members of the WISR Learning Community and no one else. However, if there is a particular seminar or portion of a seminar that will make an individual feel uncomfortable and or that puts their privacy in jeopardy, as an exception to the rule, we will not record that session (or will delete a requested session or portion of a session), if we are notified by the concerned party within 24 hours of the end of that seminar. Recordings from the Annual Conference, Graduation Ceremonies, and some parts of the All School Gatherings may be posted to a larger audience on our website, and by participating in those events, an individual agrees to our sharing photos, video and audio of those events. International Zoom call in numbers are also available.
