using part-time collaboration to achieve full-time results! No matter

involved in goal oriented groups and discuss the process, pitfalls,
and potential of part-time collaboration from their experiences in

a variety of levels of administration and sizes of organizations.

interactive applications where the audience can directly apply the
topics covered. Whether you’re a hobbyist or looking to go pro, if you

other or simply want to know how to get your foot in the door, this
