Presentation made by Michael John Neill–there will be time for questions in the live session.

Handout is included for live presentation and recorded version.

Webinar will run live on 9 September 2021 at 11:30 a.m. central time. Registration is limited. Pre-order price is only good until 9 September at 11:30 a.m. central time—normal download price is $15.50.
