  1. Hello Rebecca,

    I was disappointment to have missed today’s events. Any chance I can see an upcoming events calendar if there is one? Are there meetings that I can attend to familiarize myself with the work that your organization does? I would love to explore possible ways that I can be of help or service.

    All the best,
