We are excited to present the Spring 2023 Richmond Hill Speaker Series. This series continues to be on Thursday mornings (10 am to noon), and will be presented virtually, which allows you to hear from people whom we could not expect to travel to Richmond Hill. And we won't have to worry about any bad weather.
Series Cost - $50 (+$2.88 handling and service fees) for all seven talks! TICKET LINK https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/spring-2023-richmond-hill-speaker-series-tickets-523600552347

Please note: A Zoom Webinar link (unique to each talk) will be sent to you one hour (at 9am) before each talk. The format will be an approximate one hour talk, with a short intermission, followed by a Q&A (written questions). There will be an email following each talk providing information the speaker would like to pass along. The talks will not be recorded.
