You are invited to provide your input. A meeting will be held Wednesday Dec 4th at the Consumer Council System of Maine’s office at 55 Middle St, back of the building, in Augusta. The meeting will begin at 9 AM. Please bring your own lunch; we have a microwave. We have scheduled the whole day if needed. What time we get done will depend on the number of people and the amount of interaction that is going on. Some prep work has happened so we will present our work thus far and then we will look at it as a group.
Please share this with others. We can’t reach out to everyone so please share this with others you know. We will be able to reimburse mileage for peers who come.
