If you don't already have a sponsor -- the CMC will ensure you are assigned one. Once you have a sponsor, make contact with him or her often to advise them of what your travel plans are, and about any difficulties you may be having. Your sponsor can make special arrangements for you if necessary -- but communicating with your sponsor is the key. Make sure you pass along your flight arrangements, and notify your sponsor of any changes.
