Upcoming events

    • Tuesday, May 31, 2016
    • 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
    • Lyngblomsten Care Center, 1415 Almond Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55108

    The FREE Volgistics Users Gathering is open to anyone that uses Volgistics. Attendees can be paid staff, volunteers, former Volgistics users, new Volgistics users, those thinking about becoming Volgistics users, etc.

    The format for these gatherings is question and answer, with the answer coming from the person in the group that has the most experience in the particular area of Volgistics. Volgistics will be projected onto a screen at the front of the room so participants can see it in action.

    The Users Gathering is held in the Chapel within the Care Center. Networking is encouraged, so bring your business cards! 

    If you have any questions about the Volgistics Users Gathering or would like to submit a Volgistics question to address during the gathering, please contact Shelli Beck at 651-414-5297 or sbeck@lyngblomsten.org.
