Since the early conventions we have had many presentations by a number of speakers. In the early days these were done with 35mm slides but now we typically see PowerPoint presentations. These presentations at our annual conventions in July are always interesting and we have uploaded a few to SlideShare to allow viewing without PowerPoint Software. Note that on the SlideShare control bar (bottom of the SlideShare image) on its far right side you will see a small IN icon, click on it to view the presentation in full screen mode (ESC brings you back from full screen mode). After viewing the SlideShare presentation hit your browser's back button to return here, Enjoy!
