Lunch and Learn Series
The Environmental Sustainability Committee hosted a series of Lunch and Learn sessions via video conference in the winter of 2013. The 45-minute sessions were recorded and available to be viewed by the public. The goal of the sessions was to increase interest in video conferencing by providing opportunities to experience this technology.
