Thank you Jonelle.  I emailed as you suggested.  Will let you know if I receive any follow up.  I have to admit if this is the route to follow, it isn't made clear in the letter.  Perhaps if the link were working on the letter it would not be so difficult.
Thank you

Hi Jonelle,
The link in the letter of explanation appears to be a dead link in that clicking does nothing and it cannot be copied and pasted.
The link as you provided it allowed me to copy and paste which brought me to the ICHOM web site.  But I see nothing there about
the AFIB standards project.
Your assistance and prompt response are appreciated

Hi Jonelle,
Sorry it is not clear to me what contact information you have in mind.  The link to a Dr Gupta is not working and the link to the pamphlet has no clear way to volunteer.  Perhaps you could send us the linl you mean for us to use.  
Thank you
