This first an introductory meeting and the second a meeting to discuss what you’ve learned.

Round 2 of these discussion groups should begin the first Week of May and wrap up prior to June 5, 2017.

In the comments please indicate your interest and what days/ times will work best for your groups. We’ll announce a schedule and allow others to sign up for your groups by the end of next week.
