If they will not allow their presentations to be published, ISM should not have them as speakers.
Alan Yarusso, May 13, 2014

Many missing presentations containing important information. We were told that we did not have to take notes since they would be available. Will they?
James Hsu, May 11, 2014

Way too many presentation files are not available. What does that mean?
Jeffrey Peterson, May 05, 2014
