New AmeriCorps Staff Orientation | July 2020

New AmeriCorps Staff Orientation Logo

July 27-30, 2020



In an effort to ensure the highest training quality possible, this orientation is being offered to 30 new AmeriCorps program staff members. A waiting list will be generated once the first 30 individuals register. Priority registration will go to Primary Fiscal and Program staff from programs in the AmeriCorps Texas portfolio. 


Current AmeriCorps State and National programs may register up to two appropriate staff members for this New AmeriCorps Staff Orientation. An "appropriate staff member" is someone who plays a significant role in your AmeriCorps program, such as your primary program and/or fiscal contact. Attendees will be responsible for sharing information and applying knowledge and updates received during the orientation with all staff at your organization. 


Note: If an organization has more than two new staff members, you may register the additional members, but please know that OneStar will first allow staff from other organizations to attend before the third or fourth member from your organization attends.  


The registration deadline is July 13, 2020. Once registration closes on July 13th (or when we reach our maximum capacity), we will confirm your attendance. Additional information about NASO will be made available to confirmed attendees at that time.

 

By registering, you commit to attend all days of training in full. Due to limited space, if you are unable to make this commitment, please allow your spot to be taken by someone who can.

**Registrants who are "no-shows" for this event may be issued a NOTICE OF NON-COMPLIANCE.**


**If fewer than 6 people register then this orientation may be cancelled**


The NASO schedule is as follows:

  • Monday July 27, 2020 9:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m CDT
  • Tuesday July 28, 2020 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. CDT

OneStar is committed to making our events inclusive of all people, of all abilities. If you require accommodations in order to fully participate in our event, please let us know via your registration so we can make necessary arrangements.
