    RSVP Info: If you want to attend please RSVP by email to Peggy Linden, Coaching CoP co-leader, at peggy.linden@gmail.com. 

    We tend to receive more than enough responses to fill the room within just a few hours.  In order to balance who attends we delay notifying those on the attendance list for up to a week to include those who have not attended recently.  We also encourage new members to attend.  We apologize if you do not get on the attendance list each month and hope you understand that we want to include more members, not only those who responded quickly.  We limit our sessions to 30 attendees as we sit in a circle to encourage full participation.  RSVP only if you want to attend, no need to send 'regrets.'

    Please let us know if you are a new member or have not attended the last three or more sessions (April through October).  We often receive more than twice the number of requests for attendance than we can take.  We are very grateful for your interest and support. 

    You will receive notification within the next seven days about whether you are on the list to attend or on the waiting list.  Also, please include the phone number where you can be reached if we need to contact you the day of the meeting. 

    Be sure to check your email for any updates if the weather is challenging or for any other changes that evening. 

    The waiting  list is for those who are willing to contact Peggy on the day of the session to fill cancellations.  We often are able to accommodate those on the waiting list.

    Policy for people who are “no-shows”:

    Since we have terrific programs scheduled, we want to provide an opportunity for as many attendees as possible.  To enable us to fill openings please email Peggy at least before 10 a.m. the day of the meeting, Tuesday,  if you will not be able to attend so she can contact those who email to fill openings.  From now on those who are 'no-shows' will  be placed on the waiting list for future meetings until we have openings.  If you contact Peggy after 10 a.m. she may still be able to fill your place.
