Join the BBA for a one-hour training which will provide an overview of the public charge rule, including:

  • How individuals can best position themselves going forward

This training is intended to provide a basic overview of the rule to allow practitioners to be able to spot potential areas of concern for their clients. The panelists will be available for questions at the end of the training.
