I think everyone did a great job and I give everyone a big hurray. I also want to say congrats to Dacia and her committee.
I think mini tech seminars is something we could hold in our room on nfb live.
We wouldn't have to travel, the participants would be at their computer so desktop users could follow along
We could make it small for more help etc.
