“Ask the query.” That was a phrase usually heard at morning management conferences (AKA espresso with my admin colleagues) at my former legislation agency. Asking the query was supposed to imply that we shouldn’t assume that others within the agency observed the identical issues that we did. It’s a name to collaborate, ideate, and create options as a crew. On February 19 at 1 PM EST the @CALLACBD Govt Board might be asking the query, fairly a couple of questions truly, utilizing a Twitter Chat with the hashtag #CALLACBDCHAT.
