    Now More Than Ever You Need To Stay Informed
    Things change faster now in weeks, than they used to in years. Clients often ask us why we do not send out bulletins more often. Simply because if we did we would be sending you notices many times each month, cramming your inbox. Instead , we post frequent updates on our website Use the search feature in the top right hand corner to find specific information.
    We try to keep this newsletter brief and to the point to respect your time and inbox space. In these times of so much change that certainly is a challenge. Thank you for subscribing!
