They are available for download for $39 for all STC members and $79 for nonmembers. Included below are description, presenter, and original presentation date. The listing below is in reverse chronological order, by presentation date, so the newest recordings are at the top.

To access your purchased recording:

Once your payment is processed, go to the Member Home page on From there, click on My Account History, and you will be able to access the link to the recording under the My Downloadables header.
