Audio Conferences To Address "Making Welfare Work: Reauthorization 2002"

1/15/2002:   The Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) will hold an Audio Conference Series on Making Welfare Work. The series of 17 conference calls, held on Fridays from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. (Eastern Time), beginning January 25, 2002, will provide the latest information on legislative developments that may affect your programs.

Wade Horn, Assistant Secretary for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the first guest. He will describe his priorities for welfare reauthorization, perspectives on other key issues, and what he has learned from "listening sessions" around the country.

Other calls will feature Democratic and Republican members of Congress, staff from the House and Senate, Administration officials, and state agency staff.

Topics of particular interest to CWLA members and friends include (in chronological order): child care, transitional jobs, families and work, child support, child welfare, and adolescents and teen parents.

An audio conference is a telephone conference call with many participants. Groups may listen by speaker phone, sharing the cost and using the event as a catalyst for discussion.
Questions can be faxed or e-mailed a day in advance. Background materials and websites for resources will be sent in advance. Additional information is also available on the Welfare Information Network at www.welfareinfo.org.

To find out more about the conference call programs, or to register, go to the CLASP website at www.clasporg/audioconference/2002. Click on "brochure." A 10% discount is given for online registration with a credit card. Individual calls are $15. Note that charges cover the phone line connection to the conference call but not the long distance charges. If you are not able to schedule live participation, an audiotape of the call can be ordered for the same price. A discount price ($220) is available for registration for the entire series, compared with $255 for registering for all calls or purchasing all tapes individually.
