The Doodle Poll is not finding any helpful overlap in scheduling our Project IV Group Conference. We need to have at least TWO of you in a group. So: Please take another look at your schedules and see if you can add a day or time to your availability. Or, if starting on the 1/2 hour works better than starting on the hour, please let me know (i.e. from 3:30-4:30pm on Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday works better than 3-4pm). If we are unable to find any overlap, I can schedule a very EARLY or a very LATE time slot on the days listed in the schedule.
