To whom it may concern……I have a question – I attended the Webinar on Ending Ageism presented by Bill and Jude on 2/13 from 1-2pm. I enoyed the frank and interesting conversation, especially references to all types of ‘prejudices’, witty hand drawn headings, rather than web designed headings and the fact that it sparked a great staff dialog following the webinar. We look forward tothe next one. Since that Webinar I have tried to follow the directions given to recieve a certificate of attendace to recieve the CEU’s. Unfortunately I have not been able to access it. Other staff meembers looked at it with me to no avail. Could the certificate please be sent to me? Thanks for your help with this. Elders Rock!
