Please note, in addition to this kind of information flowing through the home pages on the platformhttp://www.comminit.com they also flow through The CI Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Communication-Initiative-Network/344005148956579 (Please Like!) and Twitter feed athttps://twitter.com/warrencomminit (Please follow!)
