2015 Workshop Recordings

We had some outstanding speakers at our 2015 fall seminar. For the first-time in GDUA history, we are offering these free recordings for those members and friends who were not able to attend these sessions live or for those wishing to enjoy them again. We appreciate the generosity of all the speakers who gave of their time and talents. Those featured here have given permission for their presentations to be recorded and shared.

To listen to a file, click on its name and the file will either begin to play or you may be prompted by your browser to save or open the file. These files are in WAV format. Depending on your Internet connection speed, it may take a minute or two for the download process. Finally, you may need to turn up your volume settings, especially for the introduction of the Goehring file. Portions of the question-and-answer segments may be difficult to hear as we did not have a portable microphone available.
