ORC’s e-mailing protocols

Members are requested to direct any questions about the procedure for viewing the file to the ORC office and only contact FrontCounterBC  if they have legitimate comments after they have reviewed the file. Although we have been authorized to receive these referrals on behalf of our many member organizations we have been requested not to overload the FrontCounter BC staff with questions which can be answered by the ORC office.

The only individuals identified in this e-mail are members of the ORC Executive Board of Directors. Other individuals receive these e-mails as a “blind copy”.

Please let us know if there are individuals in your organization who would like to have their names added to or removed from our regular e-mail distribution lists. ORC welcomes suggestions for improving this information service.
