For those able to attend the first Greater Denver Placement & Referral Alliance (GDPRA) meeting at the Village at Belmar. Thank you!

We had over 90 people in attendance! Our speaker Michelle Topkoff from the state did a great job discussing the new state regulations. Our President, Cindy Koch, thought Michelle was informative and thoughtful in her presentation. 

There is a growing need to bring professionalism and “Best Practices” to our industry. Placement services offer an invaluable service to families when they have high standards. Click Here for the NPRA “Best Practices” that all individuals placement members will agree to as NPRA members. GDPRA would like to add to NPRA’s “Best Practices.”  We have formed a committee that will develop additional “Best Practices” for the GDPRA and hold placement services accountable.
