You can learn more about Slack here. Slack will allow us to streamline our communication and keep it organized using the channel process. In order for Slack to be a great communication tool, we need you to contribute. The first way to contribute is to introduce yourself in the #intro channel – basically give us your elevator pitch/quick bio.  Join here!
