Special Note Before You Register:  I have found that (thankfully)  most people like my teaching style…but some do not.  The most frequent concern people express is that I don’t lay out the information in a straightforward “just the facts” manner.  That is true.  I find this topic fascinating, even though I have taught this material many times.  I believe the underlying reasons for these rules and the stories or cases that illustrate each rule make the material come alive for me – and, I hope, for you as well.  If you prefer your information presented without these embellishments, you may find my teaching style frustrating.  I just want to give you fair warning.  Those of you who like explanatory tales and a sense of humor that one attendee called “weird”  (thank you, by the way), I’ll look forward to spending an enjoyable and very educational experience with you in a few weeks.
