Assistant Editor’s Note: The ATTA received this letter and would like to pass it on to our readership. To access the full letter, please open the PDF.

Dear GSTC Member,

The Secretariat would like to bring to your attention an open letter co-authored by GSTC Chair, Dr. Kelly Bricker and GSTC Executive Director, Erika Harms.

The purpose of the letter is to again correct misinformation circulated by critics of the GSTC Criteria and to invite our critics to join us in direct dialogue.

As the letter states, we have actively worked to respond to concerns raised in our community. However, we felt it appropriate to once again address the misinformation as it hurts both our common mission, creates avoidable division and can put our members in an awkward position.

Please take a moment to review the letter and let us know if you have any questions or concerns. If you know some of our critics please provide them with an open invitation to  join us in proactive dialogue.

Kind regards,

Janice Lichtenwaldt

Communications Director | GSTC
