Visit the NASDDDS Website

Peter and I are spending a vew days in Northern Virginia with State Directors from aorund the country.  It’s nice to see one of the keynote speakers be from our home state of Connecticut, none other than Joette Katz, the Commissioner of Connecticut’s Department of Children and Families and Governing Magazine’s 2012 Public Official of the Year.

This is a great conference for both policy wonks and for networking.  If you haven’t been before, you should give it a try, it’s quite an impressive guest list!
