QS Community Revival

From: Chris
Sent on: Tuesday, July 5, 2016 2:38 PM

Hi all,

The QS community revival was a big success and the organizing team is already looking forward to the next event.

Please let us know if you would like to participate in any way and/or suggest ideas that come to mind. This is an open forum which thrives on engagement and feedback.

For example, Rosalind had a great time with everyone and therefore wants to loop in more of her community going forward.  We encourage others to do the same as we believe this, and your participation, is how we continue to advance the quality of interactions found in these gatherings.

Thanks again,

QS Committee
