Join us as we discuss "History from the Group Up"!

This event did go "live" at 11am on both Facebook and here on our website with our team monitoring your questions until 12pm. At this time our two guest speakers will record a Q & A session. So if you do have any questions for our speakers please head over to Facebook and place it in the comments section or send us a message by using the contact box below.
