VRPS Director's Forum

by Nancy Turnage, VRPS Central Office

VRPS Director's Forum

VRPS is preparing to convert to a new website.  Part of the conversion is cleaning up the old one, including the Director's Forum subscription list.  Directors who are primary contacts for their member agencies are eligible to subscribe to the forum.

The Director's Online Forum provides a venue for professionals to share ideas, experiences, and sources.  A user posts a topic upon which to open conversation.  Subscribers are emailed the post and have the opportunity to respond as part of a continuing thread of conversation.
  1. Login to VRPS.
  2. Go to Services-->Forums
