ROMA Training

As many of you know, IM 138 has instructions pointed to the need for ROMA training at the Community Action agency. IACAA will be reaching out to agencies that have not participated recently in ROMA   trainings and make arrangements to provide a ROMA training opportunity that will assist in the understanding and need for performance management systems and meet 7.9 of the Organizational Standards. ROMA is for the entire agency!
