March Quarterly Luncheon

Many thanks to our ARA members coming out to the recent luncheon on the Alcon Fort Worth campus.    We had a great turn-out, much fun and camaraderie amongst all attending.

Our thanks as well to Stu Schlackman for his enlightening presentation on communication styles and improving our relationships.    The link to Stu’s website is shown below.    Checkout his brief survey to determine your personality type and preferred style of communication with others.


Please be sure to mark your calendar for the next ARA luncheon set for June 19th.   We look forward to seeing our Alcon colleagues and friends for this event !
