November Webinar

Our webinar arrived with corrupted audio files. We were the second group to report this problem and the company has re-issued the audio files. Despite the change in plans, the group rallied and discussed other topics of interest. Dennie will negotiate with the provider for a full refund or access to another webinar at no charge.
