Learning From the Best.
Every month emphasizes a specific topic and features a main session led by an expert in the field. Participants create robust and expanding networks of peers and professional contacts and opportunities to self-evaluate and learn from others’ experiences.


Each session is free and open to the public. RSVP is required as space is limited and available on a first-come first-served basis.
