TIP Offers Comprehensive Professional Development in 2015

Category: General — NYSID @ 2:14 pm

NYSID’s Training and Information Program (TIP) is committed to providing quality training and essential business information that meets our members’ needs—at no cost and in convenient locations across New York State.

We encourage past participants and those new to NYSID’s training opportunities to participate in TIP

TIP provides specialized knowledge for rehabilitation professionals who take a forward-looking approach to their work and improving the lives of New Yorkers with disabilities.

Since 2002, TIP has been a highly regarded, cost-free “best practices” resource for communicating better, achieving goals and developing talent. We’ve had more than 10,000 attendees so far… and counting!

TIP 2015 emphasizes change through process improvement for individual and organizational effectiveness. Our professional development opportunities span 20 different topics designed to help you leverage enhanced strategies for improving productivity, engaging employees, complying with employment law, creating new jobs, and much more.

The first TIP session of 2015 is the “Business Development Forum: Paradigms Revolution,” on February 25, presented by Brian Bateman, NYSID’s marketing manager, from 10am-3pm at the NYSID Training Center in Albany. The Business Development Forum will take place bimonthly throughout 2015 at various locations across New York State.

The second TIP session of 2015, “Employment Law Developments & What They Mean for Your Agency,” presented by John Bagyi, Esq., James Holohan, Esq. and John Ho, Esq., all of Bond Schoeneck & King, will take place on March 11 from 1-4pm at YAI, 460 West 34th Street, 11th floor, New York City. The session will also take place May 28 in Albany and July 15 at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Victor.

Each year, NYSID introduces cutting-edge process improvements to its TIP roster, and 2015 is no different. Check out these new courses presented in partnership with SourceAmerica:

NYSID offers on-site sessions for Preferred Source Contracting/Compliance and Regulations, which may be requested by members or associate members who are producing commodities and/or providing services through New York State’s Preferred Source Program.

We also remind new members and associate members that it’s mandatory for them to attend NYSID’s Member and Associate Member Orientation within six months of joining NYSID, and prior to receiving a NYSID contract. It is open to all staff interested in learning about the NYS Preferred Source Program.

During the half-day session, Karen DiBella, NYSID’s vice president of Contract Administration and Quality Management, provides participants with an overview of NYS Preferred Source Program regulations, responsibilities and benefits. Each participant receives a copy of NYSID’s Member Manual.
