Thank you to Jon Buzan and Jerry Naples of REPSG for hosting an interesting, and fun Roundtable. They held their Roundtable at the Piazza with a penthouse view. It was the perfect spot for their topic discussion: If you were King or President, what laws would you change? This generated a lot of conversation about underserved issues in society.
