Planning an Exodus meetings are scheduled for Monday, September 25 at Room L-104 Tuesday, September 26 at Room L-104 Wednesday, September 27 at Room L-104. These meetings will go over information you'll need to know in order to plan an exodus that ends in a traditional ministry. We'll cover timelines, financial considerations, credential files, and also go over all the resources that are available to you as you negotiate this final year. The meetings will only last 30-40 minutes, but will cover lots of information you'll want to know for your final year. This is the only week these workshops will be held. Graduates intending other careers---your turn is coming--no worries! Folks not graduating until 2008 or 2009---please wait until it's your graduation year---things change!
