WHAT SAY YOU?
New this year, this group highlights discussion of hot-button topics. Each month members signing up for the meeting will be asked to submit a topic of interest to the coordinator for possible discussion. No one knows the month’s chosen topic until they are casually introduced by the coordinator. Many topics will be used at a meeting. Each member will be encouraged to participate in the discussion. Goal: to learn the pros and cons of a subject and show respect for the questioner and topic. Size of the group is limited. Ann M.
