  • After assessment and feedback from the roundtable presentations and discussions at the 2013 Showcase, it became apparent that our people needed more hands-on workshops than showcasing of the existing programs.  Therefore, the Showcases were discontinued and more emphasis was placed on APR workshops and Gearing Up workshops by OIA.
