The reality is that many of us have questions and few of them… however, they want to get info out as accurately and quickly as possible so in general you will receive the following autoreply that let’s you know your question has been received for processing:

  “Thank you for your submission.  It will be reviewed and when an appropriate response is ready for sharing, it may be incorporated into the FAQs posted on The Durham Center website at Waivers FAQs.”
