GOAP Administrator Training

The Governor's Office of Agricultural Policy (GOAP) will be hosting the 2017 CAIP Administrator Trainings.  These regional training sessions will be held in eight locations across the Commonwealth.

CAIP administrators are the target audience for the 2-hour training sessions that will focus on changes to CAIP, frequently asked

questions, compliance, and reporting.  The sessions will also include an overview of expectations of administrative entities, administrators and county councils; specific reporting and compliance procedures; and, an overview of open records and open meetings.

Who Should Attend? Program administrators - the individual(s) involved in daily management of the program for the administrative entity - are required to attend one session. This training must occur prior to execution of a new legal agreement for CAIP.  Others involved or interested in the agricultural development process are welcome to join us.  All participants should pre-register at least three days in advance of the event.
