Con Ed Sponsors

We still have Sponsors that did not show up for any of the four Con Ed Link Sessions - I can not approve your course registrations until you attend a training.  I understand that things happen, which is why I schedule two more sessions - this will be it until after April, this means if you do not make one of these two sessions - you will not be able to run con ed classes until you do (sometime after April).

Two sessions are:

Nov. 18, 2016 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM - EMMCO Office

Dec. 2, 2016 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM - EMMCO Office

Please email me at and let me know which one you will be at.  I did send emails out today for this, if you did not get an email, this means you have not updated your Sponsor Information, I will need you to do that as well. 

Thank you.
