credit) in any reporting to your membership, boards, committees, or in your publications, etc.



We hope you agree that there are great things continuing to happen with both TIC & TGIF. While things are certainly more challenging financially, we continue to push the work forward, and hope you find much value in the outcome of those efforts.



We’d also like to especially point out the inside back cover’s summaries of  “How You Can Help” and “Future Directions” – both are areas where your support and assistance are needed and appreciated.”



With regards to all,
