**As a courtesy to our speakers, we ask the everyone remain in their seats until the presentation has concluded.  We understand that participants sometimes have to leave a bit early to make it to 1:00 pm meetings, however, we usually leave approximately 10-15 minutes at the end of the presentation for questions.  This would be the most appropriate time to slip out quietly.
