CWS Web-based Meet-ups

CWS recently purchased Adobe Connect which is a web conferencing software service that offers online meeting experiences for virtual learning and collaboration.  CWS has begun to host monthly topic-based “Meet-Ups” through Adobe Connect that are generally 1-1.5 hours long an​​d held over the lunch hour. Attendees can participate through their computer and a conference line.  All meet-ups are recorded and archived for later learning/viewing. The purpose of the meet-ups is to educate and train child welfare professionals, as well as provide a virtual forum to share best practices, innovative ideas, and collaborate statewide.
