Brian,

May I send this to the president of a non-profit with which I am affiliated?

Thanks,

Craig

Craig -

Sure that is fine. You can also send them a 30-day invite, which would allow them to read this, and any other articles they are interested in.

Thank you, Brian. Since the organization, SonSet Solutions, concentrates on another area, a 30-day invite probably won't be useful. (And I'm on a month-to-month subscription, so I cannot send them one, anyway.)
