Avoid the End-of-Term Panic

This month is a good time for members and site staff to do a status check of hours served to confirm that members are on track to complete their term hours on time.

Each member's minimum "target" hours can be found in their MSA and timesheets.

ALERT:  Make sure all timesheets are approved in TimeTracker! Only approved hours are reflected as completed/served.

Review the updated tracking chart for 2018-19. Use it as a general guideline to help determine whether you're on track.

Getting behind? Discuss ideas and make a plan with your site staff and Program Coordinator to get caught up.

2019-20 RFA

Site staff, please mark your calendar: our 2019-20 RFA and Intent to Continue are scheduled to be released in February.
