If you, as one of our employees or as an applicant for employment, have any questions about this policy or would like to review our current Section 503 or VEVRAA affirmative action plan, please contact the Director of Human Resources during regular business hours.

I have reviewed and fully endorse our Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity program.
