Important Information re: Cancellations and Changes
During our in-person classes when we have to cancel or change a class date, it is very difficult to get the message to everyone. The process we follow is first of all to email everyone who has registered for the class and call the people who do not have an email listed. If the class cancels at the last minute, we call everyone who has registered for that class. We then send an email blast about the cancelled class to those who have email and note the cancellation on the home page of the RISE website, www.riselearning.org.
Do you know someone you think would make a great presenter for RISE? Do you have an idea for a subject that we haven’t touched on yet? We would LOVE to hear from you!
