The National Guardianship Network (NGN) in collaboration with the American Bar Association Commission on Law & Aging, has announced the release of their new publication, WINGS Tips: State Replication Guide for Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders. The publication may be downloaded as a pdf from the ABA website here. The accompanying description explains the publication's importance
Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders (WINGS) are broad-based, collaborative working groups that drive changes that affect the ways courts and guardians practice, and improve the lives of people who have or may need guardians.
This publication, produced by the Commission on behalf of the National Guardianship Network, highlights the hallmarks of successful WINGS groups and outlines ten steps for launching and maintaining your own WINGS program.
For those of you unfamiliar with NGN, their website explains it "is a collaborative group of national organizations dedicated to effective adult guardianship law and practice. First convened in 2002, the National Guardianship Network has played a leadership role in advancing guardianship standards, best practices and education."
