ACT Chats

I offer the first ACT Chat on Thu 25th of Feb 2021:  
Time 6:30pm – 7:15pm (might go to 7:30pm)

How to participate:   

  1. Please email me an ACT question you have –  OR
  2. Email me to indicate that you would like to participate

I will take about 6-8 people to join:

  • Those people with an ACT question will get first preference
  • Those that would just like to join in will be accepted on a first come first served basis, (however the people with a question will get preference!)
  • If we have no question to answer, I will select an ACT topic that we will discuss.

Best wishes to you all,
