Event Date: 
Thursday, February 22, 2018 - 1:00pm - 2:30pm

In the final session, we will discuss the various ways you will need to manage and use the data you’ve collected. We’ll consider the logistics of entering, storing, and maintaining your data. We’ll also look at how to develop an action plan that ensures your data program is useful and sustainable.
