(Please note, if 5 Comm Requests have been submitted on that Friday, yours may not be made until the following Wednesday or Thursday. Comm Requests are evaluated in the order in which they are received.)
-Comm Requests that need more work (missing details, etc.) cannot be made into Comm Plans into fully completed.
DEADLINESBulletin deadline: Every Monday (with the exception of holiday weeks)
