Happy Holidays from

Happy Holidays from all of us at!

I'm not certain who "all of us" is because we're all in this together, but I suppose it includes me, our conference call hosts, the many volunteers we have, our speakers, and all of you because you're all a part of this group too!

We're taking a break from our calls until the second week in January.

Consult our "SCHEDULE of Future Conference Calls" for our future calls

Consult our "ARCHIVE of Past Call Audio (MP3/Podcasts)" for recordings of past calls.

Remember, you can always listen to the last conference call by telephone, see our website for the phone number!

I also want to take this opportunity to thank our volunteers:

  • Our Conference Call Hosts, David Radkovich, Mike Chrepta, Scott Percival for their tireless generosity of time
  • Our Podcast Volunteers for their time to get those podcasts out
  • Our new volunteers who are working on getting out the emails, contacting our speakers and marketing our group
If you would like to volunteer, please consult the message listing "Volunteer Opportunities" at:

And, we're always looking for people to suggest topics, speakers, and to think of new things that they may want to do for the group!
