Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I would like to gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Ellen O'Bryan for reading rough drafts, contributing comments, and sharing her materials with us for the purposes of constructing this manual. And I also want to thank Laura Amil for generously sharing her ideas, time and materials. Their perspectives as facilitators have molded my thoughts as I gathered practical suggestions and ideas for facilitating.

A special "thank you" must be included here for the contributions of Judi Harris, for it was she who kept me "on track" and patiently served as "conductor" in this enterprise! And, as my own personal journey with the Electronic Emissary took place, she masterfully demonstrated the art of facilitating facilitators! What a challenge!
