Presentations from Past Events
At some of our events special guest speakers will have a fine powerpoint presentation. Sometimes these speakers are willing to let us have their presentation so that we may convert it to web pages for this website.
At times the presenters are writing a book and would rather not give away their material before their book is published. We want to respect their need for privacy. Yet in some cases they have been willing to let us put it on our website, if we will restrict it and make it password protected. This allows us to selectively let people we can trust to get to see the presentation, but the general public is held back. If you are an MHSS member and have clean motives, it is not hard to obtain access to those powerpoint presentations.
