Second, the great webinar about the future of K-12 education, held two weeks ago will soon be available behind the member sign-in wall.  Again, all our webinars we expect to have more views after the fact that will attend live.  All webinars will be archived forever, no matter when one becomes a member.


Third, we unfortunately have to reschedule the October 1 webinar to either later in the month or in January when we have no webinar scheduled. We are planning to take looks into the future of healthcare and medicine, technology, higher education, and an update on the climate crisis.  Please stay tuned!


Fourth, we continue to grow our membership base since our COVID-19 conversion to all virtual and on-line.  We continue to gain members every week, but still want to grow rapidly in the months ahead.  As we reach certain levels we will think about how to provide connectivity and interactions within our membership community. A new self-selected highly intelligent and influential global group to interact in ways beneficial to the future of Sarasota, America and the world.
