Well hello September! I trust that everyone had a safe and enjoyable summer, and are ready to refocus on what is to come. I was just looking at the educational and social events that the CSEG continues to hold in spite of our economic downturn… please consider attending if you have the time. Most events are subsidized by the CSEGF or the committees for those who are currently in transition or underemployed. Keep current our friends!
