On May 5-7th 2017 LAP Directors from across the country and Canada came together in Atlanta, GA, for the first ever Independent Annual Retreat for LAP Directors and Assistant Directors. The event was organized by the Louisiana, Colorado, Delaware, Montana, New Jersey, Mississippi and Montana programs
Attendance was limited to LAP Directors and Assistant Directors only, and this one-and-one-half day seminar was a closed, confidential forum for LAPs’ Staff to discuss internal operating challenges and share experiences on how to address them. LAP Directors came to Atlanta from as far away as Vancouver BC and even the Hawaiian Islands.
Several presentations were made, including Louisiana’s presentation wherein the Michigan and Louisiana Directors made a presentation on Louisiana’s JLAP Performance Audit and answered questions about the Audit. The attendees were very grateful that the Louisiana Audit was available to them. Many other presentations and topics were covered by various State LAPs over the course of the weekend and it was a great success. LAP Directors are already committed repeating the seminar next year.
