    An afternoon of can't-miss education is planned for MERC's Summer Education Meeting at our own little corner of the UK, the iconic Brit's Pub. The event will run from 12:30pm-5pm. The general meeting and education session will be from 1pm-3pm, we will have a discussion on Mobility Revenue: Getting Comfortable with the Uncomfortable. Panelists Include:

    • Jill Rush, Relocation Today
    • Angela Chrz, SIRVA
    • Shannon Brown, Fazendin Realtors
    • Melanie Robertson, RSM

    We end the day 3pm-5pm with a little lawn bowling, drinks and networking on the rooftop deck. One of the reasons Lawn Bowling is so popular at Brits is that it is so easy to play. Whatever age, gender, physical or academic prowess - it doesn't matter! Anybody can learn the rules and play to a good standard very quickly. It's very similar to Bocce Ball - just make sure you ROLL YOUR BOWLS!
