Hi all COMECC Keypersons/Coordinators

Thank you very much for supporting the coming COMECC campaign.

I’ve already been in contact with most of you, so hopefully this is going to the correct person. 

However, if you will not be our COMECC contact, please forward this on to whom it will be, and copy me (Jill) in on the email, so I’ll know whom to contact in the future.

There are three training sessions; you can attend in person or dial/login to a session.

There are over 300 COMECC Key Persons receiving this email and we need to plan accordingly for the room set-up, light refreshments and materials based on how many people are attending in person.

 Please reply to this email to RSVP whether you can attend. In your reply email, please put your name next to the applicable option and also list anyone else who may be attending with you from your agency.

Phone/login instructions will be sent in advance to those who indicate they will be attending by audio/web conference.
