OVC is holding a free evaluation overview webinar this Friday, August 21st from 1-5pm ET. Apologies for the late notice, but I just found out about it myself. Preregistration is required. Sadly, I have no other information, but I registered for it this morning.
 
BTW, the site says to register by 8/14--I was able to successfully register anyway. I wouldn't wait too long, though.
