In 2004, VOMA is getting its new Training and Technical Assistance Program off the ground. You can expect a range of workshops and trainings in a variety of locations this year through this program. They will also be co-sponsored by some of our partners to make them rich and rewarding for all participants.

VOMA's Board of Directors has decided not to hold an independent VOMA annual conference in 2004. Several reasons are behind this decisions:

  1. We wanted to organize an outstanding first year for the T & TA program whose purpose is to get VOMA supported training into local communities for greater access at lower costs than our national conference,
  2. The general financial constraints of our members has made it harder in the last two years for them to afford travel to a national conference, and
  3. The continuing drag of the US economy has prevented government entities from traveling out of state or receiving funds to attend our trainings.

Don't worry - the international VOMA Conference WILL be back in 2005!

In the meantime, VOMA WILL be holding the annual membership meeting (as required by our bylaws) at the conference of the Fellowship of Reconciliation, an organization with which we think VOMA members will feel a real affinity.

In addition, FOR will make space for a track of VOMA sponsored workshops and a VOMA pre-conference training at their conference. The FOR conference is to be held August 5-8 at Occidental College in Los Angeles, California. The VOMA membership meeting will be held at that location immediately preceding or following the FOR conference. More details on our meeting and workshops will be forthcoming. Meantime, we encourage you to check out the info on FOR's conference at www.FORusa.org.

If you have any questions, call the VOMA office or contact any board member.
