Video from November Program Not Available
As our virtual participants know, there were issues with the sound during the presentation on Ethical Storytelling with Bill Martin on November 1st. Due to these problems, the recording will not be available on the website.
All virtual registrants will receive a refund or a credit for a future program, and we will continue working to ensure that our virtual participants are able to fully experience each program offered by VAFRE.
