Period 13 Evaluation Links resent this morning

If you were on a 3-week project during period 13, which ended yesterday, the email with your evaluation links that was sent midday yesterday did not go through.  So the emails were sent again this morning.  Sorry for the delay.  And thank you for evaluating your project!

Winter Team Leader packets going out

Team Leaders for Winter NOMADS projects, which begin in January, have been emailed their leader packets for period 1 and period 2 projects. Period 3 will soon be emailed out.

Winter 2013 projects are being staffed
