As you know MALAT grad Christy Boyce will be joining us and presenting at our next live meetup (May 3). Sometimes when I have guest speakers I open up the session to the world at large, for the portion only where the presentation happens, not any other parts that might happen before or afterwards. Usually we'll get a few people joining in for these. It's nice exposure for the presenter and also sometimes it's of interest to people exploring taking this program, as well as those who are simply interested in the topic. It might include other former students too.
My question is, are you ok with this? If anyone would prefer not to have Christy's session opened up in this way, please let me know by whatever means you wish and I won't do it. No reasons required. I only ask that you let me know by Thursday evening this week. Thanks.
