Please review the following important updates regarding: The FDAP Website survey, Training Opportunities, Serving the AG, and Personnel Changes at FDAP
FDAP Website Survey
The FDAP website is now 13 years old. In human years, that's approximately 1,950 years old. In other words, ancient. In the coming year, we will be looking to move the website to an easier to maintain platform and at the same time we will update the content, appearance, and functionality of the website. In order to assess what changes to make, we seek the input of our website users. With that in mind, we please ask you to complete a survey, the results of which we will use to steer the updating of the FDAP website. We greatly appreciate your time and input. Please complete the survey by March 24, 2017.
Serving the AG:
Always serve the AG’s general mailbox at email@example.com (that mailbox is added to TrueFiling by the Court) even if a specific deputy’s email address is also listed) Please do not just check off the deputy’s email address for service. The AG's calendaring process depends on service to the general mailbox.
