  1. Thanks for all the great videos! Would love to see the second half of this session (explaining the RUS program) if you happen to have that recorded as well?

  2. Pam,

    I’m sorry I didn’t record it. It came down to simple logitics – the second speaker stood up and the room was too crowded to capture him without moving people and furniture. I wish that I had; he was very good.

    The PPT is his – but it doesn’t give as much context as he was able to give in person.

    Sorry! Ann
