2012 National Training Workshop


Hello BIG Members, now is the time to begin planning for your attendance to the 2012 National Training Conference (NTC) in Detroit Michigan during August 13-16, 2012. The NTC Workshops and Training Committee is diligently reviewing all workshop applications. We have been working really hard to bring an extraordinary training program to this year’s NTC. We have reduced our planned number of workshops from the previous years by 50% of which 50% of that, will increase the number approved CPE workshops. Our primary goal this is to increase the number of approved CPE workshops. As one of our process improvements, we are looking into a tracking system that will track each workshop attendee throughout the conference. This system will provide “real-time” attendances for each workshop especially those approved for CPEs. If and when this system is activated, we will need the appropriate number of facilitators assigned to each workshop throughout the conference. Your help to serve as a facilitator will be greatly appreciated.
The primary responsibility for a “Facilitator” is to volunteer for a workshop(s) of your choice, Assist with controlling the attendance in the workshops, and Assist the Presenter. Of course training is required for the tracking system. The benefit is that you will get credit for attending the“assigned” workshop. This is a great way to build those training hours needed to meet your agency’s training requirement.
