New Team Manager Training Information…

We are trying something different this year for our New and Newer Team Managers.  We are offering a 3-hour training session during the week rather than on one Saturday, like we have in the past.  These training sessions will all be the same, but will be offered in four different locations across the state.  This training goes into a lot of detail about the program and how to successfully run a team.  We highly recommend all new and newer team managers attend one of these training sessions.  Click here for where and when!
