SLK Database Focus Groups

As you know, many of the SLK database and online resources have contracts expiring in August, 2019. It is now time to review what we have and decide if these are the best resources for all Kansans. These focus group sessions will gather your feedback about the current resources and suggestions for new or different products.

Each session will last about an hour
