    1. Hi Page! There’s no need to register for the chat. All are welcome to join by logging onto Twitter at 2 p.m. ET on Thursday and following the hashtag #NACACchat.

      I think the link you are referring to pointed to the Twitter page showing the latest #NACACchat tweets. Strangely, the link works for me using Mozilla, but not Google Chrome. I’ll remove the link to avoid confusion, but rest assured, you don’t need to register for the chat! Just join us Thursday on Twitter at 2 p.m. ET.
