Communicating with trainers, RBPD specialists, and other interested parties in Minnesota is an essential activity of the TARSS project. The following methods were employed to reach the intended audiences:
TARSS staff provided responsive customer service to 800 emails and 46 phone calls received.
TARSS sent out 9 monthly issues of The Source as well as 30 weekly round-ups with reminders and announcements regarding courses offered.
Information regarding TARSS trainings and registration as well as informative Q & A profiles were posted online and accessed broadly. We created a total of 10 web pages and 7 blog posts.
7 blog posts relating to TARSS were shared via CEED’s Facebook and LinkedIn accounts.
TARSS attended, presented at, sponsored, or staffed vendor tables at multiple events throughout the year. We made 2 presentations and staffed 2 vendor tables.
