Planning an effective program begins with an evaluation of the needs of the audience or the community, and the resources available to meet those needs. Having objectives that are tied to local, state, and national goals, building these objectives throughout the program, and linking your program to a sound theoretical approach are important for maximizing program impact. This session will provide information on needs assessment, designing measurable objectives, incorporating theories in programs, and using appropriate technologies in reporting impact data. Best practices for building strong programs will be identified.
