ABCD in Action Is Moving!

Exciting news!  As you may know, we are in the process of preparing to move this online community to a new platform. We are still welcoming new members here, so don't worry about signing up!

Our plan is to move sometime during the week of Oct. 24th. During the move, we will temporarily put this site "on hold" for 2-3 days. Once the move is complete, we will send all current members an email with directions on how to log into the new site. 

In preparation for that move, I encourage you all to make sure that your email addresses are up-to-date. You can do this by signing into ABCD in Action and looking for the Settings button below you name in the right hand column. 

Questions or comments? You can add comments to our discussion forum or send an email to

Watch this space and your email for further updates as things progress...
