We have consistently had a problem with people RSVPing late or RSVPing yes and then not attending.  Last meeting, 11 of you didn’t make it after RSVPing.  At some point Jay’s may not allow us to use their room, as we RSVP for 30 and only 20 come and they are staffing for a 30-person party.  Also, keep in mind, our volunteer speakers make copies at their cost.  We know people get sick and emergencies happen, but please make the effort to RSVP in a timely manner and then make an effort to attend.  Thank you.

Registration Fee:  $0.00 (FREE)

Lunch:  Usually costs about $15.00 and a donation is asked to help pay for the speaker to cover gas and copies cost.

Note: This meeting is only open to those trained in EMDR.
