You'll be able to subscribe to any of these discussions so that you can be notified of new posts and respond via e-mail. The Link community will also house a searchable resource library, peer education groups, and other services that help you connect to our national community of charitable planners. Read more about the new functionality here.  
GIFT-PL and the current e-community will be unavailable from Thursday, October 13, through Monday, October 17On Monday, when you log in at our new site, you'll get a quick tour of the Link community and then you can continue the GIFT-PL conversation that's been going strong since 1992.
If you'll be at the National Conference on Philanthropic Planning, visit our booth to see how GIFT-PL and all the other Link functions work. If I don't see you in Dallas, I hope you'll contact me with questions about GIFT-PL and the Link community.
