The meeting dates and topics will be:

  • May 5, 2017 - Effective and Efficient Communicating 

They will be information classes with lots of Q&A time.  There will be different speakers for each class.  The goal is to have several “Elmers” available for each class so there will be plenty of people to answer questions.  We will go over the basics for each topic, and hope to get into more detailed classes starting in March 2017.
