[MARHMIS] Any volunteers?

Hey MARHMIS/ NERHMIS! My Region 4 TA colleagues and I have been brainstorming ways to reignite a peer-to-peer group in in the southeast U.S. much like these groups. We plan to have an orientation call with everyone in the region 4 CoCs on 2/29/16 at 11 AM. One of the things we'd like to be able to do is briefly share why participating in something like this over the long term would be beneficial to them. However, in a "you don't have to take our word for it" fashion, we were hoping that one or two of you wouldn't mind hopping on the call to share your perspective. We shouldn't need you for more than 15 minutes during the call, with the possibility of a short prep call a couple weeks beforehand. If you wouldn't mind helping out, please let either myself or Irene Peragallo ( ) know sometime within the next week. Thanks a bunch!
