Hi everyone,

 

I wanted to share with you what COABE is doing for AEFL Week
<http://www.coabe.org/aefl-week/> . In particular, those of you on Twitter
might wish to join us in the twitter campaign online here
<http://www.coabe.org/aefl-week-tweets>  and pasted below. The tweets are
from Tom Sticht's "ABCs of Investing in Adult Education" and we're actually
starting the tweeting now through 9/26. 

 

Also new is the Keys to Success Campaign, which encourages students and
practitioners to post a picture of their key to success in adult education
to COABE's Facebook page. Incentives include drawings for a conference
registration and phone chargers. 

 

Please help us to get the word out and I look forward to seeing you in
Twitter!

 

Best ~ Jackie
