After a very busy (and successful!) fall, winter and spring training/conference season we are giving our staff time off in July. This is our slowest time of the year plus our building is having the roof replaced during this time, so we are cutting back dramatically on our office hours and closing completely on some days. We are taking as much staff vacation in July as possible in maximize our availability the rest of the year. Here are our projected office hours (completely and totally subject to change except for the “office closed” period)
July 5-8: Usually open from 9:30am to 2:30pm but occasionally closed during this time. July 8: Closed July 11- 14 Office open 9:30 – 2:30pm, usually. July 21- August 2, 2016: Office completely closed. August 2 - August 31, 2016: Summer Office Hours In Effect: 9:30am – 2:00pm, Monday to Thursday. Closed Fridays September 6, 2016 onwards: Regular Office Hours Resume: 9:00am – 4:30pm. Monday – Friday.
If you call us during July or August, you may get our voice mail. If you call in July it could take us a few days to get back to you. The best way to contact us if by email. We will be monitoring email and should be able to get back to you much faster than via phone.
