The Department of Criminal Justice Services, which oversees the CASA programs in Virginia, holds a conference every other year for all the CASA programs in the state. This year representatives from Goochland CASA traveled to Norfolk to attend. They included sitting (l. to r.) Jean Harris, Eileen Kinelski and Lynne Selfe. Standing: Ann Casey and Jennings Shields. The workshops were excellent and the participants brought the information back so they could present it at some of our in-house in-service training meetings.
