About Education
Education is a focal point of the RWCS events. Each year the Education Manager puts together an education schedule for both Convention and MidWinter filled with great learning opportunities for members. Education sessions are held on the second day of the Convention, Friday with three or four sessions break out times as Saturday of MidWinter.

Education Sessions are a great way to: hear about the new research about Red Wing, and learn tips and ideas from fellow members.

The Education Manager is always looking for speakers, please get in touch with her at
