    I'm a part-time PTZer since AZ doesn't transition to daylight savings time and I'm spending a good chunk of my time in AZ these days. (It was awesome to tease folks in the Montana office in January but I'll get payback next week when the forecast is calling for 105+!) Being in the PT gives me lots of new empathy for how significant the time difference is from Eastern Time and how challenging it can be to schedule meetings across the country.

    @SaraOmari we currently have 29 people registered for the Portland Regional Training event! While we have trainers living all over the country that will come in for the event, we are also fortunate to have two based in Vancouver, Washington who will be leading the GLM/SLM sessions.

    @CassKaminetz @ElenaKeltz @AllieCarreon @StefanieOBrien @soniamarieleikam @CathyHeutmaker @AleciaKleiner @AnnButterfield @AbbeyCameron Will you be joining us for the Portland Regional Training?
