Online Roundtable

Gotscharek 140x210Our new roundtable format, the online roundtable, debuted on May 18, 2016, with the topic of "Project Health Check—Project Optimization." Even if it is, by definition, not a "local group," we see this format as a relevant representation of the institution and chapter, "a (virtual) national presence." Our online roundtable will now take place at irregular intervals using the webinar platform of chapter volunteer Wolfgang Gotscharek. We will keep you posted using our regular channels as well as in the event calendar.
