Schedule

Here's a quick rundown of the TENTATIVE schedule . . .

Please note --- Although we are planning to drop the Tuesday morning session, the expectation is to offer the same number of CE credits as in the past.  This change in schedule, hopefully, will save members another night in an expensive hotel room!  More details to come.
