During the question-and-answer segment of the webinars, submitted questions will be considered in the order received and may be posted on the NNI website. A moderator will identify relevant questions and pose them to the speaker(s). Due to time constraints, not all questions may be addressed during the webinar. The moderator reserves the right to group similar questions and to skip questions, as appropriate.
