Thank you everyone for joining. It was such an informative talk.

We apologize for the technical difficulties. We again had over 100 attendees today, and and it appears the software program struggles with the volume. We will be pausing our Green Talk Series until we sort these problems out. Please bear with us and we thank you for your continued support.

Hi! I missed this. Do you have a recording by any chance?
