There will be a brief power point presentation at the beginning of each call. Each Program Director/Officer will facilitate the call for their particular program area. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers. Each call has a maximum for 150 participants who can join the call on a first-come, first-serve basis. Each call will be recorded and placed on the Weinberg Foundation’s web site, so if you cannot participate on a call, you can listen to the recording of the call 24 hours after the conference call is completed.
