Hi, Everyone
It was great to see many of you in Detroit at Brownfields 2008!
The next Job Training Outreach workshop is confirmed. This is NOT the
grantee meeting....this workshop is open to anyone interested in
learning how to develop a job training program. Details are below, and
I've attached a flyer to this email that includes a registration form. 
Mike and I are asking for your help. Could you please help us get the
word out by forwarding this announcement to everyone you feel could
benefit from this workshop? We would greatly appreciate it!
Please contact Mike or me if you have any questions. 
Thank you!
