The forums will remain free for the foreseeable future. We require
registration primarily to keep the SPAM postings out (we are not
completely successful, however).
We do have several private forums that are for COE members only. We
are trying to increase the value of the forums for the Membership.
The training forum that Colleen mentioned above is the location
where we will be posting the training materials that we collect at
the Conferences and Workshops (which you have to be a Member to
attend as well).
This forum was started primarily to discuss the annual conference.
