  1. Money that was allocated to your agency at the beginning of the FFY 2005 to attend the NWA Conference in St. Louis and was not all spent for the NWA Conference,  can now be used by your WIC staff for other professional development opportunities, but it must be used by Sept. 30, 2005.  WOM policy, ER# 1.03700 Conference and Training will provide guidance for spending this money.  Please request approval for other conferences or trainings from your appropriate WIC Field Nutritionists: Mark Wright, Northeastern and Eastern districts; Sue Redding, Northwestern and Southwestern Districts; and Nancy Russell, Southeastern and Central Districts. 

    When it comes time to bill for these conference or other trainings, bill for them under Line Item 13 the WIC Conference Line Item on the WIC 24.
  1. Please complete the attached regarding your new microcuvettes needs.  Once you submit your usage info, I can better determine what the needs will be for the next 6 - 12 months.
  2. The Local Agency Plan (LAP) trainings begin June 30 and are scheduled throughout July.  Almost all LWPs have signed up for one of the sessions in the Department District Offices. The trainings will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m..  If you have stated on your registration form that you will bring a computer to the training, it will need to have Excel spreadsheet capabilities.  The computer also needs to have the most recent version of the WOM.
