DAC Visioning Workshop
As a way to strengthen our voice and the power of the recommendations from our report, we worked with representatives from the other DAC pilot project regions to convene a workshop of all seven pilot project regions and state agency personnel. The result of this workshop is another set of recommendations being put forth by all seven regions and helped along by state agency staff.
