NARA Key Indicator System: Facilitated Dialogues with Dr. Rick Fiene

Key Indicator System: Facilitated Dialogues w/ Dr. Rick Fiene


Child Care | Adult Care | Child Welfare

In partnership with Dr. Rick Fiene, NARA is starting facilitated dialogues on Key Indicator Systems. The Key Indicator System methodology applies across licensing areas and these dialogues will allow licensing professionals across child care, adult care, and child welfare to discuss the application and theory of Key Indicators as they increase efficiency and effectiveness of existing licensing systems.

This group will meet for one hour in March, June, and during NARA’s Annual Licensing Seminar in 2018. Additional meetings will be determined as the group sees fit.

To join this new group, please fill out this short 3 question survey to indicate your interest and let us know which Key Indicator topics most interest you.
