Hey Larry,

Glad you decided to join and check this service out. CHART is evaluating if this is something that members would find beneficial. One thing you may want to do is search for the group CHART Training (leave out the Forum) and join that group. This is where you will find the majority of the CHART members. We created the extra site just in case.

Hope all is well and talk to you soon.
