If you’ve already joined the FDL Membership Program and you’d like to be part of the liaison team in your community responsible for delivering goods to your local occupation, there’s a webinar training tonight at 8pm.  We’ll also hear from liaisons about what has happened in their occupation this week.  If you’re a member you can sign up here.  If you haven’t joined the membership program and you’re interested in being a liaison, you can join here.  Many cities (especially the smaller ones) don’t have any liaisons yet, so if you’re looking for a way to help your local occupation, it’s a great way to be of service.
