It would be very helpful for us to have your feedback about how best to proceed with this training partnership.

Dear Private Agency Directors:

At the Public-Private Provider Child Welfare Summit on May 5, 2010, a brief discussion was held about the CWTI private agency certified trainer pilot for pre-service training, how it worked, where we hit some snags, and where we might go in the future.

To continue that discussion, CWTI is inviting you and staff members who would potentially be involved with pre-service training to attend a meeting to discuss next steps. We hope to work toward having private agency partners involved with many aspects of CWTI training, but will initially focus on foster care and adoption pre-service institute training (PSI).

Please participate in the attached Doodle survey to indicate your availability to meet on either June 18th or 25th and also to add comments about issues, questions, or approaches that you would like to have the group discuss at this meeting. http://doodle.com/kzy6zam4244yekei

Please know that the meeting will take place either June 18 or 25 in room 3B at the Lansing Training Center located at 7109 W. Saginaw Hwy, 3rd Floor West Wing, Lansing, MI 48917.

Thank you,

Joy Thelen
