Networking and breakfast, featuring a full breakfast – local, organic, creative – prepared by Local Sprouts Cooperative, will take place from 7:30 – 8:00 followed by a 45 minute presentation and a 15 minute question, answer & discussion period. Attendance is limited and pre-registration with payment is recommended. Attendance is $15 for members and $20 for non members. Please note that a modest increase has been made to the registration fee effective September 2012 to help us cover the costs of this great program.
