Once we receive the form, you will be contacted by one of our specialists within 2 weeks to set up a meeting.  If you do not hear anything by then please email Jason at director@causecollectivelincoln.org.
We will contact you directly if we do not currently have any specialists in your requested topic.

This is a brand new program, and we welcome feedback in the process.
