MWHA Listening Session

If you have ever had a thought about the MWHA, now is your chance to share it! 

We want to hear what you like, what you would like to see added or changed in the future, and any other input you have. We believe that chatting over coffee/tea/cocktails/pizza is the best way to really get all our ideas out, so pour yourself a beverage, dish up some snacks, put your feet up, and join us!

Sunday, March 11, 2018 at 7:00 pm

You can join by computer (ideal with a video and microphone option, but not required!) and/or phone (smartphone or otherwise). If you're joining from a "device," you may wish to check the link out ahead of time so you can download the app.
