Hey Paul!  Just starting to really use this site.  Since ICE blocks so many things I am hoping maybe we can use this to keep better informed.  We'll see. I'll spread some juicy rumor and see if comes back to find out whether it's working.  :-)  Keep in touch with what you are up to!

Even if not for yourself, you might have people in your agency interested in obtaining their CLP credits at a really affordable workshop.  If they are a current COTR (COR), they will need it under the new OFPP FAI FAC-COR criteria.
