Don't Be A Fool...Answers To Your Questions

There is no such thing as a stupid question, right? Then why do we have questions that make us feel foolish? This is your chance to submit your questions in advance of the seminar and have your topic discussed without anyone knowing who submitted the question. No joke! We are hosting this seminar on April Fool's Day to answer your questions. - Can't think of a question right now, but want to attend? No problem, register and hear the answers to other people's questions. The attorneys from Keough & Moody, P.C. will also have some content to share regarding important information that seems to be overlooked by managers and board members all too often. Don't be a fool, register today! http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07e92wx71m127147a4&llr=gyjn4vdab
