While there is much of great interest, I would just like to point out that one very good reason for many, including particularly those involved in websites and/or applications for Portal Grants, to attend is the track dedicated to access to justice Website Assessment process.
As folks know, The Ford Foundation has funded a full evaluation and assessment of the websites network and there will be much to learn about the Report of the Evaluation from that process.
I understand that the evaluation included a 100 point assessment of each of the websites. I also understand that there will be a “Playbook” released that will include concrete steps that states can follow to improve their sites.
Given the role that websites are likely to play in establishing staewwide access to justice portals, this is surely a particularly opportune time.
The Portal RFP responses will be due only six days after the TIG Conference ends, so you’d better be there if you want to integrate the Report insights into the RFP response!
