TACFS Kicks off the HR Workgroup for 2020
This year the TACFS HR workgroup is going to be hosting several online forums for guided group discussions, a late spring in person meeting, and an early November in person meeting. We’ll be learning, networking, and working through the most challenging HR topics for child welfare non-profits. Our first online forum will be held on February 28th from 11:00am to 12:00pm.

The Alliance is happy to be kicking off our 2020 season of STaRC on April 3rd 2020 at Buckner Children and Family Services, 5310 S. Buckner Blvd. Dallas, TX 75227 (Calabria Building). Based on feedback from you, we’re trying something a little new this year. First you’ll get caught up on all the need to know information that’s been happening in child welfare in Texas and across the nation (new data, new studies, new directions). Then we’re going to do some public-private problem solving with the DFPS Contracts Performance shop. We’ll conclude the day with a presentation on the business side of non-profit work with the actual topic of discussion chosen by YOU (once you register), and an introduction to the STaRC Book Study. Please see the agenda attached

Please register here. Can’t wait to see you in April!!!
