Executive Seminar Topics : 1  2  3  4

  1. Fiscal and Legal Systems (San Diego, CA)

    Seminar 1 examines financial, programmatic, and legal factors that impact the administration of state vocational rehabilitation (VR) programs. These factors include: financial monitoring, audits and audit findings, cost sharing with partners, and indirect costs. Other factors include: acquiring adequate state matching funds, third-party match, resource sharing and cost allocation. VR leaders must have effective strategies for developing and administering cooperative agreements, memoranda of understanding and fee for service agreements. It is vital that VR leaders are able to make effective use of state and national performance data to strengthen the VR program.

    (San Diego, CA)

    Seminar 2 examines inter-agency and community partnerships, leadership development, organizational planning and sustainability to improve performance outcomes. We examine community development models to enhance our understandings of the cultural and generational diversity that impacts service delivery, resource allocation and policy development. Participants will use Transformational Coaching models to facilitate discussions about leadership and systems issues that impact quality services and measurable outcomes with each consumer.

With the leadership and public policy developments through the Administration and Congress, the content and experiences for this session are dynamic and insightful.
