- Presenters will provide a macro perspective outlining the Ticket to Work mission, insights about the Ticket holders themselves as customers, the responsibilities of Employment Networks (ENs) as front-line administrators, and how improved field integration can be fostered through the Partnership Plus model. This will also include an overview of the potential financial benefits of public workforce entities becoming an EN and the administrative services now available to provide support.
- Presenters will drill down further by highlighting the different EN models available to administer Ticket to Work in the field. Presenters will share their insights on the reasons their entity became an EN to administer Ticket to Work, the current benefits to their agency and its customers stemming from this partnership, and describe their current experience in being an EN.
