I’m planning on it.

Jennifer, I’m hoping to send several again this year to DC. It seems more expensive than prior years so Umatilla Morrow CASA group will probably be much smaller than in the past. I hope to see you all there!

Can’t afford it.

We can’t afford it either. I have a difficult time spending donated dollars to attend.

Jennifer M. estimated expenses for the National CASA/GAL Association Conference (see below) and asked Janet Savarro about Title IV-E Reimbursement. Per Janet, the below would be reimbursed at “75% level times IV-E eligibility rate”:
Estimated costs:
Airfare = $538
Registration=$485
Hotel=$1,500
DEI training $175

That’s a great reminder Debra and, given the reimbursement potential, makes the possibility of some of our program going more viable.

Is anyone interested in an Airbnb? Every time I’ve gone to DC conference (I think I’ve only missed one) I have stayed in silver spring at my cousins and taken the train in and it was so easy. If we all get a place with a lot of beds, we could do the same? Here’s an example. I’m willing to search and book if I get some commitment. 

well shoot I have no clue how to do a photo. I will send on email!

Team – in case you missed the National CASA/GAL announcement, they are offering grants to cover registration fees (need to log in to access this page): https://nationalcasagalassociation.regfox.com/2020-national-casagal-association-conference 
This was in the e-news sent by National CASA/GAL Association on 2/13/2020.
