The Focus

This week’s class will focus on business and politics. Mayor Bill Wells will be giving this lecture.

The Format

The format of this course will consist of an approximately 30 minute lecture followed by a Q&A session lasting about 20 minutes. Although we model the new EFC format after collegiate courses, we respectfully ask all in attendance to refrain from asking questions during the lecture portion so as to give the speaker(s) ample time to get through the material.

Keep the Conversation Going

Refreshments will be available for purchase downstairs at the Skyline Café before and after class. We ask that you exercise good stewardship and help us keep the facility in good order by cleaning up after yourself. Once class is officially over for the day, we encourage ongoing information exchange and networking while maintaining appropriate social distancing. If you have any questions that did not get answered in class, please email them to us and we’ll either incorporate the responses into a future session or email you back directly.
