Readers will recall the article in last month’s Compendium concerning the adventure of attending a CCH at the new Barbara Jordan Building in the Capital Complex at 1601 Congress Avenue. That article included the shortcut to a YouTube video produced by the Division containing instructions for parking and attending a hearing.
