New Agenda For Spring NATCSD Meeting

Hi Everybody,

I just wanted to let you know that the Executive Board just met and there are some significant changes to the Agenda at Miccosukee Resort, April 24-26,2018.  Commissioner Lekan will be here in person from 10:30-4:30 instead of just the afternoon on Tuesday,4/24.  We are starting the meeting promptly at 8:30 am and changed some of the Agenda around, so we have more time to prep for our conversation with the Commissioner.   We are also trying something new at our Directors meeting and will be breaking out into 4 groups on Wednesday, 4/25 afternoon.  We hope by doing this we can get more input and have better conversations.  We are asking for someone to take the lead on 2 small group discussion 1. Child Support Guideline Review 2. Noncustodial Parents Barriers.  Please contact me ASAP so I can fill you in on more information.  We are also working on getting the Hotel to extend their blocked rate as well. See Meeting Agenda under Documents.
