see below Feedback received from our participants :

Congratulations on a very well-rounded WEBINAR on a crucial subject area at this critical time. I am sure it gave valuable insight and information to many of the listeners. I know you put in a great effort to pull it through, but you should be proud that at the end of it, you were able to make the Foundation perform an excellent service to the community.
Well done! Nandi.
PS: Do try to make the introductory part at the beginning short. Try beginning with the first speaker ASAP and then introduce other speakers and information sandwiched between the other speakers. Today it was more than half-hour before the first speaker came online and you may lose listeners that way. nj.

Dear Friends,

To the SLF webinar organizers, you did an outstanding job. Planning and executing a webinar of this magnitude is no small feat.

I hope our paths will cross soon. Until then, please stay safe and healthy!

Your dedication and passion for service is apparent and I appreciated the opportunity to get to know each of you throughout this process. If I, or my office may of service to you or your constituents in the future, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or have them reach out to my office by emailing
With gratitude!
Be safe and stay healthy.
