Please join us at 9:00 am (CST) on Thursday, December 28 on Zoom to reflect on what has happened to us during the 12 months of 2023.
Are we happier, better off, in worse shape or what? What did the year set in motion for our futures? Was it determined by our past? What was the role of human genius and human error?
We would like to hear your thoughts.
To register, please email email@example.com.
The event will last about an hour.
