August brings back to school excitement!  So get your thinking caps on and join Daniel Serdar and Monika Hess as they lead a lively Round Table discussion the first two Mondays (7th & 14th) of August at 10:30am.  Daniel and Monika would like your input on how etiquette has changed along with technology and the impact this has had on meaningful and quality communication across many areas of life.
