Event Details

We look forward to seeing you in Clearwater, FL, SEPTEMBER 21-24, 2014 for the fall meeting of the National Network of Statewide Afterschool Networks focused on Leading for Change: Expanding Learning Opportunities in a Changing Policy Landscape. Statewide afterschool networks are invited to meet together to focus on strengthening networks for policy development at all levels. Networks are invited to bring the network lead and one additional representative who is engaged in the day-to-day work of the network, likely a staff person.

The objectives of the meeting include:

  • To consider the changing national and state policy landscape and strategies to educate policymakers about the impact of afterschool and summer learning;
  • To explore leadership concepts and strategies to build an action plan, engage and guide partners and measure effectiveness;
  • To support network leadership in the nuts-and-bolts work it takes to manage networks.
