The sign-up form includes the current month as well as future session topics. Note that topics may be subject to change. We will confirm your availability the month of the event.

Submissions for the monthly SPARKS presentations will be reviewed by the DAC committee along with the guest moderator.  Only 10 will be selected based on their relevance to the topic.
