IMC Online Programs in the COVID-19 Period

IMC Online Programs in the COVID-19 Period

With IMC closed as part of our society’s effort to “flatten the curve” in the transmission of the COVID-19 virus, IMC has transitioned to online programming. During this time, we are streaming many of our programs via YouTube or Zoom.

You can check below to see what we offer online and how you can join us. A PDF version suitable for printing is available here. Our offerings on YouTube take place on IMC’s YouTube channel. You will need a link to each Zoom event. If a Zoom link is not provided in the chart below or if the Zoom link is incorrect, check the event on the IMC calendar for the correct link.
