Thanks to all who attended yesterday’s Coalition meeting yesterday.  We have a couple of updates.  

There are three webinars coming up soon:  Next week on May 6 our rescheduled annual Immigrants and Public Benefits training, and on May 5 a forum on the soon to be available federal discount program for broadband services, and the following week on May 12 our annual Elder Benefits training.
