EAST Alumni welcomed guest speakers James Hopper, EAST Initiative Development Coordinator and Lori Canada, EAST Initiative Program Coordinator to our July and August regular meetings. Hopper shared how to self-promote using basic psychology in the workplace to our Alumni gathered in Fayetteville and Canada discussed using Google techniques in the workplace to promote sharing and teamwork. This month we look forward to hosting Bill Stovall, Executive Director of the Arkansas Community Colleges who will be addressing Transitions in Life. We hope you will be able to join us live and in person or through Google Hangouts as Stovall shares his experience and expertise.
