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!
