MACS Peer Networks

Networks are peer groups made up of staff employed in MACS member agencies. These groups have two primary ways of communicating regularly with one another, sharing information and resources in order to promote promising practices in the state.

Network participants share information and resources through:

  • Scheduled meetings
  • MACS-maintained e-mail listservs

In doing so, participants have relied on each other, and the group, for guidance and assistance in problem solving, developing and implementing policies, and related issues. Network participation provides member agency staff with quick and easy access to their peers.

Participants in the currently active networks have recently provided assistance to one another, or learned from experts, on many topics. 

If you would like to join a MACS Peer Network, please contact Renae Kosmides at Include the name of your agency and the name of the MACS Network you would like to join.
