This event is aimed at those who are familiar with seeking authorization for their institution in multiple states. This will not be a presentation-type meeting, but a hands-on participatory workshop in which everyone shares their own practices and learns from others. The workshop goals are:
- Actively share and learn from other participants specific practices that you can implement in your own setting in managing and organizing your state authorization compliance activities.
- Develop relationships with state regulators and learn about their regulations, their preferences, and how to best work with them.
- Obtain an update on the nationwide reciprocity agreement.
- Meet others with compliance responsibilities and have fun.
