As we did last time, let’s sit right down into our small groups. Please try to come a few minutes early, help yourself to some refreshments and find the table of your choice so that we can start on time. Instead of having the sign-in table in front, we’ll have separate sign-in sheets for each small group table. Please be sure to sign-in and give your e-mail address, especially if you’re not already on NWCHCA’s mailing list.

The plan for timing (if all goes well).
