This series has been planned for every Wednesday in late Fall/Winter 2020-2021 (except during holidays) from 8:30am-10:30am.

During Coffee Chat, we invite you to grab your morning coffee and catch up with fellow attendees. Then we’ll introduce the day’s speaker, who will present for 90 minutes. After that the moderator will facilitate a Q&A segment where you can submit your questions to the speaker via chat or live over your microphone.

You may register anytime, but please be advised that not all topics and speakers have been finalized yet and cancellations due to a topic change may not be accepted.
