Success story: First Latvian facilitator at the Leadership Workshop


A while ago, at the the beginning of August, there was held a Student Chapter Leadership Workshop in San Diego, USA. About 25 volunteer facilitators were needed to ensure that everyone attending the Leadership Workshop has a high-quality, small group discussion experience. Our University of Latvia (UL) SPIE Student Chapter long-term member, Dr.phys. Inga Saknite was happily chosen one of them.
