Hi Carla, please advise what link you are referring to.

The one from Celina's slide.
I have been continuously correcting that during this whole planning!
Carla, all PowerPoints will be posted to our symposium site within the next 24 hours. https://coabe.org/ability-to-benefit/. Celina will be making some changes, so once we receive the updated slides, they will be posted.
You are welcome!
I think this is some great information, if we can execute it in a professional way. The website and the testimonials, I would love to appeal to our potential students' hearts first.
Thank you! Excellent!
Thank you all!
