National Association of Regional Councils
The COVID-19 pandemic had to huge impact on the ways in which regional councils are conducting business. In some instances programs had to be curtailed or eliminated because there was no way to provide the service and remain in compliance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for maintaining a safe space and preventing the spread of COVID-19. In other instances whole new ways had to be invented to maintain services but in a very different and sometimes unrecognizable way. And in some instances whole new programs were created out of whole cloth to respond to the pandemic while maintaining the goals and objectives of the program. The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is one region that reinvented some of its programs and the ways it conducts business to ensure that services to older Americans, unemployed and dislocated workers, and the community were maintained, and Board and subcommittee meetings of local elected officials continued to occur on a regular basis.
This webinar will be held on Tuesday, August, 10, at 3 p.m. eastern, 2 p.m. central, 1 p.m. mountain, and 12 p.m. pacific. This webinar will provide time for questions and comments, and we urge you to bring your region’s experiences and what lessons your region learned to the discussion to ensure that we hear from a diverse group of regional councils.
Becky Kurtz, Manager, Aging & Health Resources Division and Director, Atlanta Area Agency on Aging (AAA), Atlanta Regional Commission, Atlanta, GA.
