During this workshop, participants will review and provide feedback on the recommendations identified from the first three workshops, draft program goals and objectives, and an initial draft strawman of a newly designed RSA program developed by the RSC. Based on the feedback and input received during the workshop, the RSC will then make final recommendations regarding the potential redevelopment of the RSA program to the Council for consideration later in 2022.
