    Wish I could have made this one. Are there any slides or audio from it?

    Presentation was a bit long but lawyers do get paid to talk. Time for more questions would have been good.

    Attorney Witt's presentation provided very basic information concerning business type and why written contracts are necessary. Considering how many had signed up to attend I was expecting far more interaction with questions/answers from the audience. I asked 1 question that was answered and had other questions but decided to use other resources for the answers.

    It ran a bit long, but the material was interesting. I think he could have done an entire presentation on contracts alone :)

    Can't make it - another mtg that night. Would love to see this afterward if recorded, though.
