We also wanted to let you know we have some room in the schedule at FLUX where members can offer ½-hour presentations. Do you have a technique you’d like to share? Or do a talk about your work? Or maybe you're a master at social media and would like to share your experiences with other members? If you have an idea for a presentation please get in touch for more information. You can email Melissa Rubin at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are so excited about this upcoming event. We know it will be an informative, event-filled and fun weekend in Santa Fe! We look forward to seeing you there!
