​The last study module for this year has be uploaded to the website. It is the first part of the communications component that is required for OCC. It is an overview of behavioral and transactional styles inherent in interactive management and interpersonal behavior. This will dovetail into the next installment on effective communication at a later date. 

With this being the second year of OCC and the study modules, I'm developing a short survey for your feedback. I hope to have it done by early December.

Finally, as mentioned in my last communication, the Board is offering a $1,000 honorarium for the development of future study modules. Contact Jesscia for a list of topics.

May everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving and Holiday season.
