NARA Annual Licensing Seminar

The National Association for Regulatory Administration (NARA) annual licensing seminar is next week.  It brings together key researchers, policy administrators, and licensing staff and administrators to discuss the latest developments in regulatory administration and science.  Attached is an overview highlighting the presentations for the week.  Please pay particular attention to the presentation by Lisa Clifford and Dawn Downer on Differential Monitoring Through Data Driven Decisions.  They have done a wonderful study in the state of Indiana in the development of a Licensing Key Indicator system and did some very interesting analyses in comparing licensing data with their QRIS system.   Many jurisdictions can learn about very effective and efficient data utilization from their approach.
