Event Overview

AmeriCorps Texas All Grantee Meeting will be a time for program staff to reflect on the lessons learned and best practices of the past 25 years of national service while focusing on the next 25 years and beyond. The overall goals of AmeriCorps*Texas All Grantee Meeting are to ensure that participants:

  • Clearly understand CNCS requirements from a programmatic, member management, and grant administration perspective.
  • Have an opportunity to connect with OneStar staff to address questions and share challenges & successes. 
  • Have an opportunity to meet, connect, and collaborate with their peers in national service. 
  • Reflect on the best practices and lessons learned from the first 25 years of AmeriCorps and collaborate with their peers to continue delivering high quality, impactful programs to members and service recipients.
  • Are energized by the impact of national service throughout Texas and return to their programs with increased motivation and inspiration.

PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS:

Per the 2019 OneStar Grant Terms and Conditions, the 2020 All Grantee Meeting is mandatory for Primary Program staff listed on the grantee's Authorized Representative Form (ARF). Attendance by the Primary Program staff contact is required on both February 25th and 26th. All mandatory events require full participation. Failure to participate fully in mandatory events will become part of the program's grantee performance report and will result in the issuance of a Notice of Noncompliance. Full participation is defined by:

  • Participants attend all scheduled sessions (plenary and breakout) in full (from scheduled start to end time);
  • Participants are actively engaged in all sessions (plenary and breakout) and activities;
  • Participants maximize all opportunities for learning, sharing and networking; and
  • Subrecipients are responsible for all materials presented. OneStar will provide sufficient notice to Subrecipients regarding the content of any events such that the subrecipient may ensure that the appropriate staff person is in attendance.

If the Primary Program contact is not available, please contact your Program Officer for approval of an appropriate substitute. Attendees are responsible for sharing and applying all knowledge and updates received during the meeting. Programs are encouraged to review the agenda to determine additional staff who may benefit from this training and are welcome to register additional participants. However, we give priority to ensuring each program is represented adequately, and will then open participation to additional staff as space permits. In the event that this event should become overbooked, we will establish a waiting list and will communicate further instructions by mid-February.

Registrants who are "no shows" for this event will be fined and receive an invoice to cover the cost of training materials, meals, and supplies.

Please contact your OneStar Program Officer with any further questions about your program’s attendance expectations.

OneStar welcomes AmeriCorps National programs with placement sites in Texas to attend.
