VE testing

My fellow VEs:

It is time to consider when we should be holding VE Tests Sessions in 2020.  The following are the proposed dates.  Please let me know if there are any issues with these dates.  Of course the time remains at 4:30 PM on these dates:

January 9

March 12

May 14

July 9

September 10

November 12

These dates should all fall on the second Thursday of each of the noted months.  

We may hold a “special” session during the year as needed or requested.

Thank you for your assistance as VEs.  Our candidates are always thankful for the sessions we hold.
