The OMNI Institute Evaluation Team is pleased to announce and host the 2019 Block Grant Evaluation Summit leading up to the VACSB Public Policy Conference. The summit takes place Tuesday, October 1, from 1-5 pm at the Hotel Roanoke (same location as the VACSB conference) in the Buck Mountain Room. Additional details including room number will be updated closer to the summit.


The summit is targeted to CSB prevention staff, even if those staff are not attending the full VACSB Public Policy Conference. OMNI will present on topics to support your block grant evaluation work and information-sharing with communities, including: providing you evaluation updates and plans for the coming year; reviewing/discussing the statewide strategic planning report; and providing an introduction to the new VASIS dashboard.

We will let CSBs know soon after September 20th if there are openings for which additional CSB staff members may register.
