I have been producing Frosina Advisories for many years in order to provide possible helpful information to Albanian and other newcomers to the USA. At first, I distributed them to all Albanian-oriented and other organizations in Massachusetts and elsewhere, but as the cost of postage kept going up, I began the practice of placing Advisories on the literature rack in Frosina’s reception area, including them with other mailings, while also posting them to the former Frosina Forum. To date, I don’t really know if these Advisories were ever useful to anybody so here’s the latest one below. I’d be curious to get your comments if you believe they’re worthwhile or not.

The Federal Citizen Information Center (FCIC) was established to help Federal agencies and departments develop, promote, and distribute useful consumer information to the public. One of the ways to do this is by publishing a new Consumer Information Catalog four times a year. Each quarter, FCIC searches out the best new consumer publications and reviews those already listed in the Catalog for accuracy.
