Join us as TACFS continues year two of our Strategy, Training, and Research Consortium (STaRC) on Wednesday July 24th at DePelchin Children's Center. Year two of STaRC is focused on strategic planning. This year at STaRC you’ll hear about the cutting edge info you need to effectively plan, strategies on how to create/implement strategic plans, and real world examples from TACFS members. In July we'll hear from presentations from:  

  • Alyssa Jones - Vice President for Outreach at TACFS on the "need to know info" from the legislative session

  • Dr. Jane Burstain- DFPS Chief Data and Analytics Officer on her team’s update to the Foster Care Capacity Needs Assessment. There were some big changes to the 2019 assessment based on your feedback!! 

  • Jesse Booher - Vice President of Policy and Innovation at TACFS on limitations on the use of data in strategic planning (or how to avoid metric fixation)
  • Dr. Valerie Jackson - Chief Strategist Officer at Monarch Family Services on a real life example of how Monarch developed and effectively executed its vision under Dr. Jackson's leadership

The agenda can be found here...STaRC Agenda - Session 2 - 2019.pdf! STaRC is free and open to all TACFS members. We've included a nominal fee for lunch. 

Can’t wait to see you in July!!
