    Welcome to the SBA training site, where you will find pre-workshop materials. To the left, you will see a break-down of site contents. In the How to Use This Site section you will find information about using the discussion board, as well as other helpful tips and outside resources. In the Presenters and Participants tab, you will find information about SBA Subject Matter Experts, who will be presenting to you in Beijing, as well as information about your fellow work-shop attendees. The Modules tabs break down the pre-reading materials by topic. Please review the materials in each module prior to the workshop in March. We will also use discussion posts as a way to generate thought about each module.  *Please note that within the modules are several webinars that use YouTube. Due to security restrictions of the Syngenta network, you cannot view these webinars from the Syngenta network. However, you may access these webinars from your home computer. Your login ID (your Syngenta email address) and password will remain the same. We look forward to hearing from all of you! Please send any questions to tomroyfrancis@gmail.com
