TCMC Brainstorming Meeting.
This meeting will be very informal yet structured and a lot of fun. It’s a great way for us to come together in the spirit of improving TCMC and all ideas are welcomed. While we understand that not every idea will warrant an action it is our goal to ignite some sort of change weather it’s a new committee or understanding of resources TCMC has not explored.
If you are not able to attend this session there will be another session the last Saturday in September. If you have any questions please feel free to email Damon Starks at email@example.com.
