Training Days and Time:

Unless otherwise indicated all training days begin with registration at 8:30 a.m. with instruction from 9:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. We make every effort to ensure that training occurs as scheduled. We will notify you at the earliest possible time if there is a cancellation.

Registration Fee: $20/day for Members, $120/day for Non-Members. Your agency will be billed for the training. When billed, please make checks payable to NEW Partnership and mail them to NEW Partnership. Checks cannot be accepted at training.

Member - Staff providing child welfare services in one of the 26 county departments of social/human services within the boundaries of the NEW Partnership region, UWGB and its Social Work Professional Program staff, and the Northern and Northeastern Regional Offices of DCF, as defined in Article 2 of the NEW Partnership By-Laws.

Other Individuals - Individuals who may be leased or contracted (1) who provide public child welfare functions for the county agency, (2) whose principle work site and day-to-day program supervision is provided by the county agency, and (3) the county agency pays directly for training and mileage expenses because expenses are not included as part of the overhead costs in the contract/lease.

Reciprocity - Members of one of the other four training partnerships in Wisconsin (Western Wisconsin, Southern, Milwaukee, and Intertribal) as well as employees of DCF are granted reciprocity and pay the NEW Partnership daily member rate to attend training. (Reciprocity is defined in Article 9 of the NEW Partnership By-Laws.)

Nonmembers - All other individuals who attend NEW Partnership training are considered nonmembers and pay the daily nonmembership training rate.

Cancellation policy:

Registrants, registered for a training session offered by NEW Partnership, who wish to no longer attend the session for which they are registered must cancel more than five (5) working days prior to the first day of the training in order to avoid fiscal penalties. Registrants who cancel more than five (5) days prior to a training session will be refunded the registration fee they or their agency paid for the cancelled training session.

Registrants who cancel five (5) or fewer working days prior to the first day of the training session will not be refunded the registration fee they or their agency paid for the session or will be billed for the registration fee if the NEW Partnership has not yet received the registration fee.

Registrants who transfer to another training session five (5) or fewer working days prior to the first day of the training session will be treated as a cancellation and the registrant remains responsible for paying the registration fee.


Registration preference is given to Partnership members for Special Skills and Topics training. Registrants who are not members of one of the training Partnerships will be placed on "wait list" status until the training registration deadline. At that time they will be notified if there are spaces available for them to attend the training.
