Staffing changes in the Des Moines Area Office had an impact on the effectiveness of the program during its first year. All staffing changes are complete so this should not affect the second year of the alliance.

Meet and develop an action plan for the upcoming year. Due to staffing and management changes in the Des Moines Area Office an introductory meeting will need to be held and discuss plans for the upcoming year.
