Reaching out to Colleagues to Join the Program Management Community

Program Management Colleagues,

Is there a colleague, a state or program adult education administrator, technology leader, researcher, professional developer, or someone else who could benefit from joining LINCS and subscribing to the Program Management Community of Practice?  They could be colleagues where you work, or in another program in your community or state, or fellow graduate students who are interested in adult basic skills program management. If so, please share with them the announcement below.
