1. From the Executive Director's Office
Later this week or early next I will be talking with staff at the White House Office of Management and Budget to further reinforce the importance of having the AHEC Program included in the President's Budget request for FY16. FY15 is in the hands of Congress right now, and regardless of the results of the November election, the current Congress will have to resolve the FY15 budget--which is one reason why it will be important for AHECs to have a strong Hill presence during our Fall Conference.
In terms of the NAO Fall Conference, given the fact that there are many conflicts with the originally proposed dates, there is a strong likelihood that the dates for the conference will be moved to early December--which does align with Congress being in town after the Thanksgiving recess. As soon as we have any more concrete information we will share it as soon as humanly possible.
Sorry for the short report this week; please be sure to check out NAO activities on social media, as each day there are Facebook posts, tweets and
LinkedIn updates; all of which get posted on the NAO website.
