rehab issues taskforce planning session
This is Chris Hunsinger the Co-Chair of the Rehab Issues Taskforce. This taskforce has been rather quiet for the past year, but we hope that we now have some ideas which will further our mission.
We now want to clarify our focus and get going for the 2022 2023 work year with a few ideas that Doug Powell and I have been thinking about.
We are inviting all interested in Rehab Issues to our meeting at 9:00 p.m. eastern time on Thursday evening Sept. 29.
We can all brainstorm, and you can let us know if you want to be a part of future activities of the taskforce.
IF you are not able to attend the meeting, but still want to be a part of our taskforce, email me at cs.hunsinger@... with any thoughts and concerns so that we can consider them as well.
We will have to firm up the time for future meetings, but the evenings of the fourth week of a month seem less crowded with other meetings to me. I propose that future meetings be at 9:00 p.m. eastern to make it more likely that west coast people won’t still be on the road home after work.
The two topics that Doug and I have been thinking about for our consideration for this year are.
Resolution Addressing Allegations of Sexual Assault, Harassment and Abuse at Blindness Training Centers and Other Rehabilitation Programs
We have been asked to assist the national ACB office when stakeholder input is being requested from other organizations. ACB wants additional buy-in from other stakeholders so that we can take our concerns to RSA and ask for information about its current policy on such issues with the confidence that others have similar concerns. Before we can ask RSA to take additional actions on our concerns, we want to know what policy is currently in effect at RSA to assist clients and state agencies when such issues are identified.
Join us if these topics sound like something you want to be involved with. I will be sending to the same lists a Zoom invitation in the next couple of days.
Thank you for caring about these topics.
