2018 Winter Training Core Conference (February 28 – March 2) http://www.nascsp.org/Events.aspx
The 2018 Winter Training Conference offers valuable opportunities for professionals from around the country to come together to discuss strategies for meeting new challenges in improved performance, innovation, and accountability in the fight to change the face of poverty across the nation. The conference is separated into the following two tracks:
The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) track focuses on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) CSBG initiatives. It also highlights best practices related to anti-poverty efforts, performance management, and performance measurement. Sessions include updates on ROMA Next Generation, Organizational Standards, State and Federal Accountability Measures, and a discussion with the Office of Community Services Administration for Children and Families about their vision for the future of the Network.
The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) track focuses on the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) WAP initiatives and grantee management issues. Sessions include updates and discussion of recent DOE WAP policy, program notices, guidance, and future direction of the program.
In addition to our core conference, NASCSP is pleased to offer the below pre-conference sessions:
CSBG/WAP Orientation (February 26 -27)
When it comes to trainings, many people are often turned off by the word “orientation,” feeling that it is irrelevant to someone who has spent a good number of years working in the field. While the 2018 Orientation for State CSBG and WAP directors and staff certainly speaks to those new to the program, it also offers a plethora of useful tools, updates, and information for anyone who administers the CSBG or WAP. In an ever-evolving world of rules and regulations, why not go the extra mile to make sure you are in compliance and on top of your game?
CSBG/WAP State Manager’s Training (February 27)
For the very first time, NASCSP is pleased to offer its State Manager’s Training. The State Manager’s Training, held in conjunction with the Orientation, is specifically designed for CSBG and WAP State managers looking to increase their knowledge and skills in order to help their agency become more productive and effective. This one-day training will provide an overview of a wide range of topics including training and technical assistance, monitoring, best practices, peer to peer application, policy and procedure adherence, annual report updates, and even provide a platform for networking and mentorship development.
