"The cities of Ilwaco and Long Beach decided to try the videoconference group training that Ann Macfarlane provides.  We had a group of 15 and had a good time following her instructive scripts and learning more about Robert’s Rules of Order.  I highly recommend Ann and all of her programs!"      David Glasson, City Administrator, Long Beach, Washington
