    Several years ago, NAHO members who conduct Human Services hearings were interviewed about how they view their roles by Karen R. Brown, then a social work doctoral candidate at the University of Connecticut and a hearing officer at the CT Dept. of Social Services. Ms. Brown reported on the progress of her work at the NAHO 2014 Annual Conference in Charleston.

    We are pleased to say that Ms. Brown has finished her work and has sent us her completed dissertation, which can be viewed below:

    Ms. Brown, now Dr. Karen McLean, is an assistant professor in the Social Work Department at Western Connecticut State University. Congratulations Karen! We are glad NAHO was able to assist you in your study of these hearing officers who play a critical role in public assistance administration.

    Attention all NAHO Conference Registrants:
     
    This is a reminder that NAHO’s special rate for suites at the host hotel, Embassy Suites-DC Convention Center, are only guaranteed through August 15.  After August 15, the rates go up to the hotel’s regular rates, which are considerably higher.  If you have delayed making your room reservation in the hope that you will find a less expensive room near the host hotel, please be aware that NAHO reviewed the rates of all the hotels in that area and found this hotel’s rate for suites compared favorably with other hotels’ rates for regular rooms.  In addition, the Embassy Suites provides a complimentary made-to-order breakfast or a breakfast buffet each morning as well as complimentary drinks and snacks at the Evening Reception.  Embassy Suites’ Passkey Reservation System has been programmed so that NAHO conference attendees can easily make room reservations at NAHO’s special rate. The website address is: https://aws.passkey.com/go/NAHODC2017. Reservations may also be made by calling toll free 1-800-HILTONS. Please refer to the National Association of Hearing Officials Conference, September 10-13, 2017. To confirm a sleeping room within the NAHO Room Block, the sleeping room must be secured with a valid credit card provided by the guest attending the event, along with a first night’s deposit BY AUGUST 15.
     
    Thanks,
