Brown Bag Lunch

I would like to know if there is any interest to attend brown bag lunches to work through selected sections/topics of the GDOT InRoads Survey Data Processing Guidelines and the GDOT Survey Manual.  My goal will be to use these brown bag session to improve staff ability to complete deliverables efficiently and to also learn from each other to see what works best.  Each brown bag session would focus on a particular topic, limited to one hour, hosted at various company offices and vendors locations every 1-2 months.   

Who is interested?

what are peoples thoughts? 

 

I look forward to hearing peoples responses and hopefully setting up a brown bag lunch soon and to figuring out what topics people would like to cover.

Meetings are free and open to anyone who is interested. However, you must RSVP (scott.north@merrick.com) for each session you will be attending due to space limitations.
