Monday, February 25, 2013: Orientation Kick-Off
Monday kicked-off the 2013 Mid-Winter Orientation for State administrators for the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) and Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP).

Tuesday, February 26, 2013: Goodbye Orientation, Hello Conference
The 2013 Mid-Winter Orientation for the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) and Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) came to a close Tuesday. Attendees walked away with a wealth of information and new partnerships. The Orientation serves not only as a time for NASCSP to present ourselves and our expertise as a resource to new and returning State administrators, but also as an opportunity to meet with the members and form relationships that will be expanded upon throughout the year. Here, members can get to know our staff, beyond our e-mail communications. At Orientation, members learn things about us; like that Mark Schmeissing is our in-house expert on all things related to the CSBG funding-formula and policy, while Rebecca Stewart is our authority on the Weatherization Assistance Program Technical Assistance Center (WAPTAC) and all of its resources. These connections will prove to be invaluable over the coming months and years to NASCSP members and Orientation attendees… Read more about the CSBG and WAP tracks by clicking here.
