A problem occurred with the first part of this video so the replay begins in-progress while the first presenter is speaking

The Website host (Go Daddy) has recently changed its media player software (into which our videos have been loaded). The prior player effectively accomodated Power Point slides, which appear much smaller in the new player. T
he slides show larger if the video is unedited and we are posting in that form in order to timely accomodate requests for replays.

You can see the video by clicking the arrow at the lower left hand side of the player box (small version) or clicking the arrow in the center of the screen (large version).

Downloadable slides will be available shortly for all presentations. If presenter slides are printed out, setting to the grey tone handout format, 4 to a page works well.
