Two seasoned members of PATCA (The Professional and Technical Consultants Association) will be leading a monthly roundtable meeting to discuss ideas of interest to those just starting in Consulting or Independent Contracting.

The Format is as follows:

1. First, there will be a quick round of introductions by those in attendance.
