WRMA Facilitates National Conference of State & Territory Child Care Administrators:

WRMA played an active role in the 2017 National Conference on State & Territory Child Care Administrators. This year the conference focused on the past two years of implementing the Child Care and Development Fund Reauthorization and what lessons can be learned from research data, technical assistance and examples of innovative administration practices.   Building on WRMA’s work managing the National Center on Subsidy Innovation & Accountability (NCSIA), WRMA took part in the planning committee and played key roles in leading presentations on topics including Criminal Background Checks, 12-Month Eligibility/Wait Lists, Market Rate Surveys/Alternate Methodologies, and Efficiencies and Coordination of Federal Funding Streams.  Sponsored by the Office of Child Care, Administration for Children and Families, all 56 States, Territories, and the District of Columbia meet annually at this premier conference.  This was a team effort with Bob Frein and Leigh Ann Bryan participating in the STAM planning committee and staff presenting at major sessions at the conference, including Theresa Campisi, Mary Beth Jackson, Brad Kramer, Jeanie Mills, Leigh Ann Bryan, and Bob Frein.
