January Meeting - Qualified Observer Course

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the impending storm, possible flooding and declared state of emergency, we are cancelling the in-person meeting at MSU and holding this seesion on Zoom instead.

To register for the meeting see: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0rf-uhrz8uG9Xljl0uDryh8IFSs_nFcxH5

The January meeting will feature a presentation by the NJAG Observation Committee Chair Mark Zdzdiarski who will give a Qualified Observer Course.

If you are planning to participate, PLEASE REMEMBER TO WATCH ALL THE VIDEOS  BEFOREHAND. More than once often helps, and perhaps taking notes would be a good idea as well. Remember, the in person part in January is PRACTICUM, and the LECTURE part is at home on your computer with these recordings beforehand to get the most out of your learning experience (flipped classroom style).

Those interested MUST watch the videos well in advance to get an understanding for the in person part. Otherwise it won't do much good.
