Chisago County Citizen Review Panel 2007 Annual Report (continued)
One main focus of Chisago County CRP in the upcoming year will be public education. We plan to host a public forum for citizens of Chisago County on a variety of topics pertaining to Child Welfare and its impact on the community. This will be presented in April to coincide with Child Abuse Prevention month.
We plan to continue monitoring Chisago County’s Program Improvement Plan (PIP).
We intend on taking an active role in the Seventh Annual National Citizen’s Review Panel Conference to be held May 21-23, 2008 in St. Paul, Minnesota.
The Chisago County Citizen Review Panel would like to thank staff and administration of Chisago County Health and Human Services for their ongoing support of the panel and specifically this year for providing administrative support.
We would also like to thank Anita Keyes, Minnesota Department of Human Services, for her efforts and guidance in assisting us to carry out our duties.
Finally, we would like to recognize the dedication of former long time panel member Doylene Voligny and panel member Theresa Burgoon, who have retired from the panel this last year.
