Policy dialogues are critical for developing responsive, effective, sustainable, evidence-informed policy and procedures. The West Virginia WIC Program has a Vendor Advisory Board to evaluate Vendor Management policies and procedures. By engaging vendors, eliciting feedback, and refining policy directions, we will develop a foundation to establish the vision and framework for improving not only the WIC customer shopping experience, but the business case for WIC vendor operations.
An annual Vendor Advisory Board meeting rotates location throughout the state. It is our goal to have a good sampling of representatives from each vendor peer group to inform our strategy and operations. The next meeting is May 20, 2020 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
. The meeting will be hosted by the TSN WIC Program in Beckley, WV with specific meeting location TBD. If you are interested in participating, please email the Vendor Management Unit at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call at 304-558-1115.
