For many the first full week in September marks the beginning of the new work/school year. Summer, for the most part, is behind us and it’s once again time to get down to business. Tonight we thought we would assemble and discuss the CCB GTT program. What do you like and what don’t you like? Should we continue with the three a week open chat sessions? What are your thoughts about the “tech” vs “non tech” topics that we’ve enjoyed thus far? What sort of topics and guests would you like to see at future “presentation” sessions? Any thoughts about the future of the National, Beginners and Youth calls? Are you enjoying the Podcasts, should we try and do more? etc. Any and all comments, questions and concerns welcome. All three team members, David, Kim and Corry will be on the line. This is your opportunity to voice your opinion!
