PROBIRT Members Pleased with Live Clinics

A special thank you to Bob Baier, David Laws, and Gary Emery for presenting their informative clinics during the “Live, Online Clinics” extended weekend. Preparation for clinics is time consuming and it takes a little getting used to presenting to a “virtual” audience. Congrats on a job well done, guys!

We’d also like to extend our appreciation to those that attended the sessions. You asked some great questions that kept the guys on their toes and added additional info. We even had a few impromptu sessions arise from questions.

Some comments we received were:

"Great stuff Mickey….I've really enjoyed the weekend so far and I'm sure Monday will be just as great. Thank you."

"Thanks everyone really great stuff!!!"

"Thank you Michelle, Bob, David and Gary for presenting these clinics. This format was not possible a short time ago and I learned a lot without leaving my shop. Thanks for taking the time away from your bench to share your expertise. Please have more of these sessions. Would also like to see a video tour of your shops. Thanks!"

If you were not able to attend the live sessions, you’ll still get to take advantage of them. All the clinics during the marathon weekend were also recorded while being broadcast live, and will be edited and added to the current library of streaming videos as time allows. If you have a particular session you’re itching to see, drop me an email at and I’ll make that session a priority for editing.

More Live Clinics?

Another session of live clinics is scheduled for March. More details will be given in future newsletters. Depending on scheduling and workload we may have further rounds of live clinics in April and/or May. If you are passionate about your craft, interested in sharing your expertise, and would like to be considered for a clinician spot at either the live clinics or during the video tour coming up in June, please drop me an email at with your contact info and the topic(s) you’d be comfortable covering.
