A risk assessment (which considers indicators such as past compliance, overall program 4

Programs that score as low or medium risk are scheduled for one visit. Programs determined to be high risk are scheduled for two separate visits. Monitoring visits for Program Year 2012-2013 will begin in October. Each program is scheduled to be reviewed at least once by the conclusion of the program year in August, 2013. 2012 Regional Grant Symposiums: Two regional conferences were conducted in partnership with Indiana Nonprofit Resource Network; one in South Bend and one in Evansville. These allowed the public to learn about the different government agencies and the grants that they offer, and provided support for nonprofits at all stages. A panel discussion was held, along with exhibit booths and breakout sessions, and 9 government agencies were represented. 2012 Governor’s Conference: Governor’s Service Awards: There are eight categories including Communities of Service, Corporate Service, Faith-Based Service, Volunteer Service, Youth Service, National Service, Service-Learning, and Lifetime Achievement. The winners have been chosen by a peer review committee and notified. The ceremony is a separate event from the Conference this year and will take place the evening before on October 1st at the Governor’s residence. Inclusion: The Indiana Inclusion Council meets quarterly with the mission to educate the AmeriCorps programs as to how they can better support people of all abilities in participating in National Service. They have created a checklist/action plan questionnaire for service sites to begin implementing this year. LeaderCorps: LeaderCorps program is being conducted again this year with with the help of two AmeriCorps program directors, Erin Rueland and Marcey Head-Vanpell. We are looking to fill 30 slots, including several representatives from VISTA and several from the Alumni network. The orientation retreat will be held October 24th, the day prior to AmeriCorps Opening Ceremonies. 5
