6:00 PM:   Education Roundtable led by Perry Farnum
An audience participation hour, with the goal to sharpen report writing skills.   The room discusses how they report conditions observed during an inspection.  The conditions are presented visually, pre-submitted comments are read and evaluated the room. Do the comments clearly identify the condition, locate it, describe it, define why it is an issue, and recommend what to do about it?  This is always a lively discussion and challenging session for inspectors new and old.
