Subject: Human Relations Institute Survey

As we have discussed with you on several occasions; we are preparing to offer training courses in EEO and related subjects to you as EEO Professional, EEO Counselors, manager, supervisors and employees. Attached is a survey of the kinds of courses we typically get requests for and find a need to offer. So that we may plan for and meet your training needs for the next fiscal year, please inform us on which course you would like to see offered, the approximate number of attendees, and the best most convenient location for the potential attendees.

Once we receive your survey, we will assess which courses will be offered, obtain the trainers/instructors, assess the costs, and determine the locations. We will then provide you with a training schedule with this information for FY 2002.

We believe it is important for us to stay abreast of current issues and case law affecting the implementation of the EEO and Civil Rights programs. Your response to the survey by August 20, 2001, will be greatly appreciated.
