VOCA State Administrator's Regional Meetings, 1997
In January of 1997, OVC sponsored a series of meetings for Victims of Crime Act administrators and/or staff from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Territories. The meetings were conducted in the following locations: Portland, Oregon; Alexandria, Virginia; Providence, Rhode Island; St. Louis, Missouri; and Austin, Texas. Surveys conducted at those meetings provided valuable input into New Directions.
In compiling New Directions, literally hundreds of reference documents were utilized and are listed in the endnotes of each chapter. In addition, the authors would like to acknowledge the following reference sources that were invaluable in compiling this document: the 1996 Victims' Rights Sourcebook: A Compilation and Comparison of Victims Rights Laws,
1997, produced by the National Victim Center, Arlington, Virginia and the 1995-1997 National Victim Assistance Academy Text,
produced by the Victims' Assistance Legal Organization and a consortium of experts in the field, Alexandria, Virginia. Both of these resources were developed with support from the Office for Victims of Crime.
