By Vicki M. Daughdrill

In writing this article, I'm assuming you were guided by Parts 1 and 2 of this series, published in The Green Sheet, Feb. 10, 2014 and March 10, 2014, in issues 14:02:01 and 14:03:01, respectively. That means you already:

And what better way than to start off on the right foot � knowing your responsibilities and getting all of the paperwork done properly on the front end.
