Phase 2: 2019 Transformation Summit

2019 Transformation Summit

8:30 am - 3:30 pm EST | Tuesday, May 14, 2019
Quest Conference Center | Columbus, OH

The 2019 Transformation Summit builds on the Transformation At-A-Glance experience through a single-day event where agency providers work directly with transformation subject matter experts (SMEs) and connect with agency peers to continue the conversations and planning processes. Facilitators will help guide the work for the day. All aspects of the transformation process will be addressed in each workgroup, and attendees will get support to address where they are currently in the transformation process as well as action steps they can take to continue moving forward. 

Morning coffee and a working lunch are provided to help fuel the conversations, discussions, and planning. 

The goal of the summit is to help participants address their current questions and challenges with SMEs and their peers, continue to revise and refine their current plan(s), and conclude the day with a concrete set of action steps and tasks they can use to drive their continued efforts in systems transformation. Community Life Engagement Project Managers will provide continued guidance and assistance after the formal conclusion of the summit through a Regional Community of Practice as well as individual email communications, conference calls, and webinars.
