Pre Conference Activities on October 12th:
HMIS Advanced Data Users Institute, 12 noon, Westin Tyson's Corner Hotel
Join other communities to kick-start a discussion for advanced users of HMIS data. Researchers, policy analysts, and data analysts join us to discuss your local reporting and policy analysis challenges and solutions. This institute, sponsored by HUD, will help participants address their immediate challenges on uses of data through connections with peers and define a structure for ongoing dialogue, collaboration, and peer support.
Participants should bring recent examples of reports and/or policy analysis that they have generated to share with their peers and be prepared to present burning questions they are interested in exploring. The meeting will close with discussion of a future vision for analysis of data within human services (i.e. for performance measurement, systems change, etc.). This session will be facilitated by HUD Community Development Technical Assistants and will help inform the development of future resources.
