To allow our members a much needed vacation Splinters is taking a brief vacation. We will not hold a session during July and August of 2021.
Our September session will return on Tuesday September 14th at 9 am ET. Our topic will be "Have changes in State regulations increased the number of workers at your facility?"
The lack of qualified workers that actually want a job has been a major problem listed by many members.
Please be watching for an opportunity to register in August.
Enjoy your vacation and time away from the business!
