CONSORTIUM MEMBERS of the Southwestern Region include the State Service Commissions -- hereafter referred to as "commissions"-- of Arkansas (Little Rock), Arizona (Phoenix), Colorado (Denver), Kansas (Topeka), Louisiana (Baton Rouge), Missouri (Jefferson City), New Mexico (Santa Fe), Oklahoma (Oklahoma City) and Texas (Austin). The consortium is further comprised of stakeholders representing AmeriCorps State/National and Senior Corps programs.
PROPOSED ACTIVITIES: The Governor's Commission on Community Service (GCCS) offers this proposal as the lead applicant of the Southwest Region to facilitate the planning, implementation, and financial oversight of the 2013 Southwestern National Service Conference (SWNSC). GCCS, in collaboration with America's Service Commissions (ASC, the national association of the 53 commissions), proposes a multi-day regional conference for AmeriCorps State/National, Senior Corps, and commission staff. The SWNSC's structure will include tracks specific to these stakeholders, collaborative sessions to facilitate cross-stream training, and a virtual component to accommodate participants unable to travel. Trainings will focus on the Corporation for National and Community Service's (CNCS) competencies in performance measures/evaluation, compliance for grants administration, program/financial management and other topics vital to effective program operations and impact.
This proposal is supported by the RSVP Association, the National Service Inclusion Project and several national technical assistance providers.
