    All Amateur Radio Class Instructors:  

    Please plan to get together at 6:30 on Friday 2/9/2018 at the MCRC meeting  to discuss your perception of how the classes are going, how your students are progressing and where we need to take the classes from this point to help our students achieve their greatest success.  

    Some discussion topics:

    • Topic progress vs the original planned schedule
    • Class attendance 
    • Class materials / tools / facilities
    • Communications - Instructors before class
    • Communications - Students between class
    • Other topics?  

    I look forward to a focused and productive discussion with you all.
