2017 Annual Grantees Meeting Registration

October 2 - 3, 2017

Great Northern Hotel

835 Great Northern Blvd

Helena, MT 59601

Registration must be completed no later than Monday, August 14th.

We are currently in the planning stages for the MT CTF Annual Grantees Meeting. The meeting will be held at the Great Northern Hotel in Helena Monday, October 2nd and Tuesday, October 3rd. Up to three CTF funded staff are required to attend from each program. You are encouraged to bring a parent leader who can count as 1-2 of your 3 people. If a program fails to attend the annual meeting, they will be placed on probation and it could affect funding.

Please mention if you have dietary restrictions or need special accommodations. We pay expenses for this meeting. Mileage will be reimbursed at $0.535/mile and meals at the state per diem rate of $5/$6/$12 only for meals that are not provided. We will arrange for the lodging. Lodging will be direct billed to the MT DPHHS, but a credit card will be needed for incidentals when you check in. Hotel reservations will be made for you at the Great Northern Hotel. To keep costs at a minimum, room sharing and carpooling are highly encouraged. Please call the hotel 24 hours prior to your reservation if you must cancel. The MT CTF will be charged for no shows. We reserve the right to send the organization an invoice for any reservations not canceled by the organization's staff or parent leaders.

This year's Grantees Meeting will include a poster session. This is an opportunity for programs to share information with other CTF funded programs. Bring a visual display of innovative program services, evaluations, or other primary or secondary child abuse prevention activities. Posters should incorporate information that fulfills one or more of the following related to CTF funded services:

  • Share an innovative CTF funded program or service currently operating in your organization
  • Describe an evaluation currently operating at the local level or in your CTF funded program
  • Present evaluation results from a recently completed program evaluation
  • Share research findings- preliminary data or final results
  • Promote your prevention work and tell your organization's prevention story

Posters should illustrate information using graphics, photos, diagrams, and a limited amount of text.

Posters will be installed in the meeting room the morning before the program begins on October 2nd. More details to come.

Time will be available during the Grantees Meeting to view posters. Participants will have time to visit with programs that are displaying posters, ask questions, and use the opportunity to learn about prevention programs, services, and evaluations being offered across the state. Presenters should plan to have a person from their organization who is knowledgeable about the display with the poster during most of the poster session. Presenters should bring 15 copies of a one page summary of the program, service, or evaluation described in the poster.
