Lunch and Learn


The FOA Board started the Lunch & Learn series in 2009 in response to the need for support in core areas affecting our business. The Lunch & Learns have been hugely successful and are still around today - here's how they work. We select themes that are important to members, we showcase a panel of experts from the Sylvan community, and invite our members to learn from them during a one hour long session. By leveraging the collective expertise of our FOA Members, your FOA Board is helping everyone drive growth in our businesses, and seize new opportunities. If you have suggestions for future topics that would benefit the system, please deposit them in our idea bank here.
