Call for Proposals

You are invited to submit a proposal to present at the 10th Annual Summit on Performance Management in Vocational Rehabilitation. All submissions are due by midnight EST on June 19, 2017 ( 11pm CST, 9pm PST)

Our conference objective is to provide attendees with information and opportunities to:

  • Share evaluation and performance tools
  • Learn about data collection strategies
  • Talk about RSA performance measures and how to track them
  • Learn more about WIOA Performance Measures
  • Network and Collaborate

We encourage submissions from program evaluation and quality improvement practitioners, program directors, data analysts, researchers, advocates, graduate students, educators, and those in Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) administrative positions.

Presentations should focus on best practices and quality assurance models related to the core context of VR data management. Our goal is to enable attendees to gain ideas, develop tools, and adapt systems that will strengthen the VR system under current WIOA regulations.

Proposals pertaining to all of the following areas are invited:

  • Performance management
  • Program evaluation
  • Quality improvement

We especially encourage topics that address performance management and evaluation of data.
