A must to attend: public welfare attorneys dialogue with human service CEOs.
The American Public Human Services Association has announced that its CEO/Policy Council Retreat will be in early December in Portland, Ore., at the same time as the annual conference of the American Association of Public Welfare Attorneys. This will provide an unprecedented opportunity for a joint CEO-attorneys discussion of the major policy and legal developments facing human services in these challenging times.
AAPWA is excited about the opportunity to bring together the nation's human service leaders and their attorneys for a joint dialogue. Potential topics include the stimulus bill (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) and accountability measures, legal issues in human service initiatives of the new administration and new Congress, and legal considerations in providing client-centered human services.
The AAPWA Conference and CEO/ Policy Council Retreat will be held at the Doubletree Hotel Lloyd Center, a short light-rail ride from the airport, with free public transportation to and throughout adjacent downtown Portland. Excellent and varied dining establishments abound in Portland, and sports centers and other activities are close to the hotel for attendees who have time to enjoy the local amenities.
By December, we will know much more about administration instructions on ARRA, the Government Accountability Office oversight of stimulus bill spending, 2010 budget amounts, health care reform, strategies for reauthorizations of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, the Workforce Investment Act, child support and other programs, and other developments. We look forward to a lively and informative discussion.
