Upcoming SCME Planned Events

I wanted to let you know what we are planning so that you have an opportunity to "pencil us in" and provide input if you desire.  Going forward, we have tentatively planned to either sponsor, co-sponsor or participate in the following events.  Times are subject to change but as things get nailed down, we will add specifics to the website - Matthias Pleil

We can now offer personalized Webinars to your region/institution on any of our kits, and learning modules.  We can also offer you access to online short courses to meet your needs.
