Upon completion, you will receive a confirmation email with the link to the appointment.

Question & Answer

The discussion board is a great resource that will allow users to ask and receive questions. To post a question, you must be logged into the Idea Portal. Click on the “ask a question” link under the discussions tab. After posting your question, a response will be posted within 24 hours.  

 You can also view previously asked questions and answers, like, comment, and share. If your question contains proprietary information, please email rather than using the Question & Answer discussion board.
