Setting the Groundwork for SFR

This webpage puts all of the necessary resources for preparing for your first SFR meeting at everyone’s fingertips. Each team member completes these short learning assignments prior to the first SFR meeting. This is the first step in getting everyone on the same page, which is key to success. Everything is presented using media that make this very simple even for the busiest lives.
