2013 National WIC Technology and Program Integrity Conference
The NWA 2013 Technology and Program Integrity Conference “Empowering Minds for a Better Future”, is an opportunity for you to network, share and learn about technological and program integrity directions for WIC’s future. NWA is collaborating with FNS to incorporate the EBT Users Group meeting and program integrity into the former NWA Technology Conference. This Conference will provide options for improving WIC’s service delivery at both the clinic and state levels, enhancing Management Information Systems (MIS) and addressing quality data collection, and information security. It is about assuring WIC agencies are knowledgeable of the latest in MIS and Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) technologies and in the process for moving towards EBT by 2020! Program integrity at all levels will be addressed.
We are expecting over 450 attendees this year, the largest this conference has ever had. Among them will be key decision makers representing the US Department of Agriculture, the 90 state and ITO WIC agencies, the over 2,100 local WIC agencies, and 10,000 WIC clinics from across the nation.
