August & September 2016
It's back-to-school time! Our favorite time of the year - classes start, kids go off to school, and our favorite office supply stores have overwhelming abundances of new and exciting things we never knew we needed.
Check out these fantastic educational opportunities! Why not beat the heat and join with friends and family to learn new tricks and techniques to break down your research brick walls.
We're showing you just a small sampling of what is available. Please explore the various websites. Many of the below societies offer classes in addition to monthly meetings - be sure to check them out!
