Peer-to-Peer Meeting; Austin, TX

AVA Peer-to-Peer Meeting Information
AVA invites you to attend the next Peer-to-Peer Meeting for STOP Administrators.  We offer these peer opportunities twice a year which provide you the opportunity to casually sit and talk about your STOP program with your colleagues.  Learning from each other is one of the most valuable training tools around.  We’ve allowed additional time during this peer meeting specifically to talk about the planning process and developing implementation plans since your state’s plan will be due in late April 2017.  We’ll also cover both financial and programmatic topics ranging from managing returned monies to monitoring the difficult subgrantee program. See the agenda here.  
When:     February 7-8, 2017
