Not-for-profits are challenged to find ways to manage hundreds, if not thousands, of pieces of program data each year. It is often data that drives important decisions about program design, management, and evaluation.
Find out how ARCHS' "Collective Impact" model is used to collect and analyze data so you can share best practices and make course corrections. Learn how to foster a culture that embraces data and eagerly uses it to support your mission. Also, how data can be best presented to tell your stories.
ARCHS partners with the St. Louis Public Library's Grants and Foundations Center to offer educational programming for area not-for-profit organizations.

2013 Missouri Reentry Conference

2013 Missouri Reentry Conference

Dates: November 20-22, 2013
Location: Tan-Tar-A Resort
Address: Tan-Tar-A Drive, Osage Beach, Missouri 65065
Conference Fee: $125 (early bird special until October 21); $135 (after October 21) per person

The 2013 Missouri Reentry Conference will held November 20-22 at Tan-Tar-A Resort at Osage Beach. The Conference's theme this year is "Reentry in Action."

The annual Conference provides high-quality education and networking opportunities for corrections professionals and community-based partners who contribute to the prisoner reentry process. The multiple tracks format offers a self-directed, facilitated learning environment with education sessions, interactive forums, and exhibits. Education sessions are carefully designed to transcend all industry sectors, focusing on current and emerging issues, best practices, and the many challenges that the community, corrections staffs, and ex-offenders face.

This year's keynote speakers are Dean Schardan (convicted felon turned stand-up comedian) and Dr. Fred Rottnek (Medical Director for Corrections Medicine for the Saint Louis County Department of Health and Associate Professor at Saint Louis University).

The annual Conference is sponsored by Area Resources for Community and Human Services (ARCHS), Missouri Department of Corrections, Missouri Department of Social Services, and Family and Community Trust (FACT). More than 400 people attended last year's Conference.
