Not all are there yet. If one of your sessions is missing, please check back soon... they will be uploaded as soon as we get them.
A couple tips...
- If you choose to print the PowerPoint presentations and like the space for notes on the side, select to print "notes page" under the Print What section of the Print Dialog Box.
- You will need Acrobat Reader to download the PDFs (most of you already have that, but if it's not opening, that might be why)
