TTA Update for AmeriCorps State and National Grantees

1. AmeriCorps State and National Symposium — The 2017 Symposium will be held at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City, 2799 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA 22202, on September 12 – September 14. The Symposium is the required annual grantee meeting for leaders of State Service Commissions and national and tribal programs funded directly from CNCS in the 2017 AmeriCorps State and National grant competition. Details on the schedule, registration, and content will be provided in late June and throughout the summer. If you’ve never attended the grantee meeting, you can take a look at last year’s presentations here. In addition, there will be an orientation to the 2017 Symposium for first-time/new attendees on August 28, 3:00 – 4:00 pm Eastern. Participation details will be provided in early August. And I am happy to discuss the Symposium’s structure, logistics, or activities at any time.

We are finalizing the event and registration website over the next few weeks, and I’ll send out an announcement when registration opens. The target date to open registration is June 26; there is no registration fee required to attend the Symposium.

2. AmeriCorps Program Development Webinar Series — The next webinar in the AmeriCorps program development series will occur on Thursday, June 15, 3:00-4:30 pm Eastern, and CNCS AmeriCorps State and National staff will present on AmeriCorps Member Training and Retention. This webinar will be most useful for leaders of national and tribal programs and state commissions who are new to AmeriCorps. This webinar will also be recorded and posted on the National Service Knowledge Network later this month at this link.
