New NNLM Accounts

Hello everyone!

The New England Region has had a new website for a couple weeks now, and there’s a great new system for registering for classes.

Instead of filling out a form every time you’re interested in a class, individuals now create accounts and have their classes connected to this one account. For some easy to follow videos and instructions on how to create a new account check out this page: nnlm.gov/about/redesign.
