Our final agenda will be released after July 4th so that we can accurately address what happens with Medicaid in the Senate. We will continue many of the meeting format changes from the February meeting. Marian Baldini of KenCrest will also be briefing the network on some of their recent technology innovations.
If you have any feedback or ideas for the agenda or meeting format, please feel free to email Sarah Meek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Optional Wednesday event focused on Lutheran Services in Iowa (LSI) and Mosaic operations!
Attendees will be picked up at the hotel at 1:30pm. Staff from Mosaic's Iowa agency will present "Mosaic Moments" and do Q&A on their Imagine the Possibilities campaign. Then staff from LSI's refugee program will brief attendees on their Global Greens farm program as a possible model for employment and training that could be used as an option for people with disabilities. For attendees who would like to stay, dinner will be catered by two refugees who have opened restaurants in Des Moines.
