Version 4

    We had such a great turnout for our first Lunch and Learn outside of Philly at the Savona restaurant.

    Many thanks to our Jivers @Alan Mon and Tim Albright Albright for speaking at this event.


    I wanted to invite all of you that registered for the event to continue your discussion here in the Jive Community.

    What you would like to hear about at our next PA event?
