A deeper dive into a range of topics related to color. For Members only.

We are sharing this webinar to non-members for free. Visit this link and enter your name and email address to watch. 

The Color Council is excited to present our ongoing Cutting Edge Color webinar series!

Webinars are one way we are hoping to reach the needs of our membership. We understand that travel and conference attendance is reduced in today's world, and staying connected technically is harder than ever.

We plan to hold Cutting Edge Color webinars quarterly.  Attendance to the live webinars is free to the public.

If you like this type of innovation, or have other suggestions please contact any of the members of the Board of Directors - they would be delighted to hear from you!

Members can view most recorded webinars under the Members menu, select "Members Only" and then "Recordings." Note that you must be logged in for this menu to appear.

The Board has developed the following guidelines for these webinars:

  • Presenters are to be ISCC members. Exceptions permitted at the discretion of the Board.
  • Anyone is allowed to sign up and view the webinar live.
  • ISCC members are granted access to the recording and possibly to download presentation slides. (That this link is only active for logged-in members). Note, however, the recording and slides of these are made available at the discretion of the presenter.

Webinars will be given via online presentation tools, specifically GotoWebinar.

At this time there is no cost to you as a participant, but you will need access to an internet browser with moderate bandwidth capability. Most modern DSL or cable internet connections should be fine. Dial-up connection will likely be too slow. Note: GotoWebinar recommends using the Chrome browser. Your mileage may vary, but we have had some difficulties using FireFox.

We plan to hold webinars quarterly, in the month following the publication of each newsletter.

The complete details for each webinars will be in every newsletter.

If you do not currently receive the newsletter, you can join the ISCC!

This will ensure you do not miss out on webinars information, or any of the other useful and timely information.

How to view the previous webinars:

  1. Login your account
  2. Under the Members menu, select "Members Only"
