Hi Shannon,

Yes, I work under the DOL grant. I'am employed by a non-profit organization here in West Central Wisconsin. We are hoping to start our own little blog here soon.

Great!  I know Patty Branton.  Were you a Navigator prior to this new role?

Hi Shannon~ Are there a group of IRIS employees attending thisevent?  Just checking.  It sounds packed with info in so very many areas~  Thanks for sending out the information.  I have never heard of this conference before~

Hi Twyla, 

This website is strange in that I can't see the post that you are commenting about!  Are you referring to the upcoming Intersections Conference in October or a different one?  If it is the Intersections conference, unfortunately that one has been postponed until May.
