Comments from the 2020 Land Use Fundamentals Live Webcast

The program kept going off and on and I had to continue to click back in. Hopefully, things will get better as this period of not attending seminars has to go on.

A good overview of all the topics.

Found this fundamentals very useful. I might suggest allowing more time for the presentations so that more Q&A would be allowed.

Sometimes just looking at the slides is a bit boring. Maybe in the future a thumbnail of the speaker could be shown on the screen if technically feasible. Just a thought as it ti easier to look at a face than a page of words!

Brenda and Joe were excellent.
