Dear Svetlanak,

First of all I want to say congratulations for your work and being one of the Hall of Notable Honorees. From your post it sounds like you have been doing some great work in order to be awarded with this honor.  Do you know if this program is going to be live streamed online for those of us who are not in the DC area? Or possibly recorded and then posted online at a later date? Thank you for work.

Sincerely,  Alyssa Rust

Thank you for your kind words! I don't know. I will ask if video streaming will be available online. What's your e-mail address? 

Very Best,

Dear Alyssa Rust, 

I overlooked your email. 

I apologize for a delay! 

The event was inspiring! The program was not live streamed online. 

It's a great idea! 

Thank you very much!
