Flipped Update From NNLM/MAR and MLA

It’s always a good day to try something new.

For this year’s UNYOC Annual meeting, we are breaking from tradition by providing updates from NNLM/MAR and MLA a few days early.

NNLM-MAR update_2014

MLA Update_2014

Please take a moment before Thursday to review these slide presentations.  This way you’ll be  ready to ask the presenters your questions!

We are eager to try a more interactive approach to this program staple, but we need your help to make it a robust conversation.

Thanks in advance!
