    All requests to postpone a hearing must be in writing, postmarked at least ten days BEFORE the hearing.  The request must provide a good reason (cause) to postpone.

    The Board will notify you of a new hearing date.  However, it may be as long as two (2) months (or more) from your original hearing date.
