We discussed at the last AGES meeting the need to have a regular presence in the AGES office. To this end, a Doodle Poll has been created to determine which of you are interested in occupying the AGES office for a few hours each week. If you would like to have your name added to the office-hours schedule, use the Doodle Poll link provided below to give everyone an idea of when you will be in the office. Additionally, send an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the exact hours you would like to be in the office so that they can be added to the schedule.
