The U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), in partnership with the Alliance of Local Service Organizations (ALSO), is pleased to announce the 2017 STOP Administrators Meeting in Tucson, Arizona on March 28-29, 2017.
We look forward to coming together as a community committed to improving responses to violence both in the required elements of the STOP formula grant program and as inspired leaders in this field. The 2017 STOP Administrators Meeting will provide opportunities to share promising practices, provide peer to peer learning opportunities, and hear from federal and technical assistance partners. This meeting will take place at the Tucson University Park Hotel, 880 East Second Street, Tucson, Arizona, 85719, Ph: 520-792-4100.
Please note that registration will close at COB Tuesday, January 17, 2017. You may register even if you have not yet received travel approval from your state or territory agency to attend. However, you must wait for your territory or state’s approval to book your flights. Participants at this meeting will be covering their expenses. For the 2017 STOP meeting, a limited number of slots are available for States/Territories to send two STOP Administrator representatives. Registration for a second STOP Administrator is on a first come first serve basis.
The details in the table below outline logistics for state and territory STOP Administrators planning to attend. We encourage attendees to engage in social media during the meeting. The hashtag for the meeting is
