DLD Virtual Open House

DLD Virtual Open House

We are doing it again! You are invited to join the DLD staff for our second virtual open house. Leading us off in the morning, hear from DLD Director Dawn La Valle as she welcomes everyone and shares an overview of updates from DLD.  For the rest of the day, choose to attend the open office hours with each DLD staff member – pop into one, or come to all!

Once you register, you will receive one Zoom link.  Join us to kick things off at 10 am and then pop in and out of the same Zoom link throughout the day to meet and greet DLD staff as you choose.
