Oh that age old cellular commercial continues to be vastly applicable. Coming up ESABA will join and host opportunities for you to listen, ask questions, respond and determine for yourself if our voices and input is getting across. After two years where the dominant response to the question "Can you hear me now?" has been "No, you're on mute," we are eager to break new ground.
