Location: Clackamas Community College, Oregon City
Featuring an ensemble cast of highly-experienced instructors, this week-long training is designed to fulfill the state training requirements for domestic and sexual violence victim advocates.
Applications will be accepted on a first-come first-serve basis, with priority given to individuals who are currently working for or volunteering with a coalition member program, as well as new advocates that have not already received the core DV/SA advocacy training in-person. Maximum 30 attendees.
It has come to our attention that our upcoming in-person Core Advocacy Training on September 18th-22nd, 2017 conflicts with Rosh Hashanah. We were unable to reschedule due to contractual funding obligations.
We are sincerely sorry for this oversight in scheduling, and we will make recordings of workshop sessions held on Rosh Hashanah available to attendees as a way of striving to alleviate this conflict.
We also want to take a moment to recognize that we may have held past trainings and events during times that conflict with dates that are significant to our membership, and share our apologies for those occasions as well.
In order to be more intentional moving forward, we will be creating a community calendar, accessible on the coalition's public website, that will include important spiritual, religious, and other significant dates for all of our member programs and community partners. If there are dates that you would like to share with us for this community calendar, please email [email protected] (link sends e-mail).
As always, we invite all our members and community partners to reach out to us with any feedback and/or concerns. We are your coalition; we are committed to being responsive and improving our efforts.
Scholarship benefit for coalition member programs
Confirmed attendees from coalition member programs located 70 or more miles from the training site are eligible to receive reimbursement for mileage1, lodging2, and meal3 expenses associated with attending this training. Unexcused absences from one or more training sessions may disqualify that attendee's organization from receiving scholarship reimbursement.
1Mileage reimbursement amounts will be calculated using the shortest drivable distance between each program's address of record and the training site, using the US General Services Administration 2017 standard federal mileage rate of $0.535/mile. Attendees do not need to submit proof of mileage incurred. Maximum one vehicle per program will be eligible for reimbursement; the coalition encourages carpooling when possible. All reimbursement checks will be made payable to each eligible attendee's organization. Attendees from organizations that are not coalition member programs in good standing are not eligible for mileage reimbursement.
2Each confirmed attendee is responsible for booking and paying upfront for their lodging arrangements. Maximum six room-nights (i.e. one room for six nights, checking in on Sunday 9/17 and checking out on Friday 9/22) per member program shall be eligible for reimbursement. Confirmed attendees for which a return trip on Friday night would pose an undue hardship may request reimbursement for an additional room-night (to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis; email [email protected] to request). Reimbursable lodging expenses shall not exceed the federal per diem rate of $116/night + tax for Clackamas County, Oregon (any additional expense shall not be reimbursed by the coalition). Each eligible attendee must submit their final hotel bill to Jonathan Gates, OCADSV Communications and Events Coordinator at [email protected] as soon as possible after the training. All reimbursement checks will be made payable to each eligible attendee's organization. Attendees from organizations that are not coalition member programs in good standing are not eligible for lodging reimbursement.
3Meal reimbursement is calculated using standard per diem meals and incidental expenses (M&IE) rates set by the US General Services Administration ($59 per full day, $44.25 per travel day for Clackamas County, Oregon). Each eligible attendee is responsible for paying upfront for their meals during this training. Eligible attendees do not need to submit meal receipts to the coalition to receive meal reimbursement. All reimbursement checks will be made payable to each eligible attendee's organization. Attendees from organizations that are not coalition member programs in good standing are not eligible for meal reimbursement.
REMINDER: Each confirmed attendee is responsible for booking and paying upfront for their lodging arrangements!
