Hand shake graphicThank You!

Thanks to everyone that traveled to Stillwater for the Partner Meeting on March 5th. We had some great discussions and received literature from most of the programs. If you were not able to provide a handout or brochure, we would still love to have some here at ABLE Tech so we can display all our partner’s information.

Great ideas were exchanged on how to successfully get numbers submitted every month for AT demonstrations and short-term loans. We encourage you to reach out to us if you are having a difficult time. There is no better time than now since we are wrapping up the quarter!
