    The CORE virtual conference was a success! 

    The CORE virtual conference was a success!  Over 200 participants across the country were able to experience the CORE conference virtually. The virtual conference provided an opportunity for SA and FNS personnel that did not participate in the in-person training conference to receive the CORE content virtually.  Virtual participants were able to engage via chat in each module and in the networking lounge.  Virtual conference also had access to the Virtual Resource center which housed training materials and the CORE graphic recording gallery for each module.  Virtual Conference participants commented: –“I was impressed with the virtual format. And I believe it was much more engaging than most webinars/on-line meeting and training I have been part of. The chat box helped a lot with engagement. I also like that there was a feature on the chat box to find the handouts for the respective session.” –“Enjoyed sessions more than had expected. Written materials excellent as reference & useful during sessions. Appreciated the fiscal detail, point of view, & how related back to fed rules/regs.— useful reminders!! Trainers clearly well-rehearsed — thank you for that. A pleasure, overall.” –“Being new to the Food Program, this training heightened my knowledge with the hands-on training I am getting through my State Agency. I feel more confident that I have the tools and resources to better explain to sponsors why written policies and procedures are so important to have in place.”
