"The study group is similar to the discipline of meeting with a Board of Directors and responding to the inquiries brought out by a group of fellow business people. It is very difficult to find a group of individuals who: 1) know the business and the "lingo", 2) who care about the fellow members, and 3) who are willing to spend the time and energy to help monitor each other."

-- Ed Owlett, Putnam Company, Wellsboro, Pennsylvania
