Dear Colleague,


I got your contact information about the GARN on Sunday at the NACAC College Fair from one of your members. I understand if you may not be looking to commit to the college fair at this time. However, thank you for your willingness to receive this information. I seek your assistance to post and circulate this information to your membership on behalf of the 2017 COCNL an organization of over 13,000 small to mid-size Churches of Christ from across the nation representing over 1,000,000 members. The 73rd National Lectureship & Convention will be held in Atlanta this year from June 2-8, 2017. Open to the public is their first ever college fair.  They are holding a college fair as part of their efforts to address the educational needs of young adults from across the nation and in the metro Atlanta area. Early registration numbers of attendees from age 15-23 are over 3,000 with another 1,500 expected by May 15, 2017. As these attendees complete the registration they have authorized us to share their information with all colleges and universities in attendance. If we are fortunate enough to have you in attendance This information will be provided to you at the completion of the college fair.


Again the college fair is open to the general public and is being advertised on many of the Atlanta local public broadcasting networks as a public service announcement. A few of the networks are as follows GPC, WREK 91.1 FM, WABE 90.1 FM, V-103 FM and CBS46. We fully expect that students of college age attendance for this event will surpass 5,000.


Comprehensive Higher Education Solutions (CHES) has been contracted to promote this unique opportunity for colleges and universities to address and direct information to high school and college age students during the College Fair component on June 3, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Georgia World Congress Center. I invite you to attend, and ask for your help in spreading the word about this opportunity. Additional registration information can be found at the following link.  


Please call or email me with any questions that you may have.
