Monthly Manager Sessions

These monthly sessions are meant to provide information, support, and resources specific to the challenges and issues managers encounter. The sessions will be provided in a Teams Meeting format allowing for presentation, questions, and discussion. ESP would like to offer managers the opportunity to gain knowledge and information not only from the formal material presentation, but from the wisdom and experiences of fellow managers. 

If you would like to attend one or more of the sessions, please send us an email at and we will send you the Teams Meeting invite.
