TABLE PLANNING

After 2 hours, you will have the knowledge to:
• formulate your program ideas
• describe what you hope to achieve
• follow through with your plans
• determine if you are successful

 

The workshop is Tuesday, June 17 from 2 – 4 pm at the Clark County Library Large Conference Room. Online registration is now open. For more information, call (702) 507-3421.
