- Skystone – Mentor Letter (snail mailed on 9/20/19) this has all the live links!
- The primary tool for communication is an email list – FTC Oregon Update sent from firstname.lastname@example.org .
- Nationally registered Lead Mentor 1 and Lead Mentor 2 are automatically subscribed.
- Additional mentors, team members, team parents, volunteers can sign up to be on the email list by clicking here.
- Due to GDPR regulations adopted by FIRST/ORTOP, I will be deleting everyone from the current list on October 31, 2019 and subscribing the nationally registered mentors and everyone requesting subscription via the email sign-up link. It’s like Trick or Treat, sign up by Oct 31 to receive awesome FTC Oregon team email blasts or you’ll miss out on key information.
