Thank you! This is just what I was thinking, but didn't take the time to
post.... it would be very beneficial to hear from both presentors and
attendees on the good things they have expereinced in workshops, so those of
us who teach, and or go to be taught can look for the plus factors in the
workshops we are involved with!
