Alliance Enterprises Adds Monster and Tableau as Sponsors of getAwareLive 2017 Conference

DUPONT, Wash., June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliance Enterprises, Inc. (Alliance) announced today that key partners, including Monster and Tableau, will sponsor Alliance's get
AwareLive! 2017 conference this summer. The July 26-27 event in Dallas is dedicated to improving meaningful work opportunities for people with disabilities.

Monster Government Solutions works with state and local governments and workforce development boards to match job seekers with work opportunities. The organization supports the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) core programs, such as adult and dislocated workers, youth workforce activities, vocational rehabilitation (VR), training and vocational services.

Tableau is a market leader in data analytics software, which Alliance makes available to state agency customers that use its Aware software platform. Tableau recently improved accessibility in its software release. Both Monster and Tableau will demonstrate their products and services during the conference.

Alliance is the nation's leading provider of case management, analytics and cloud services for rehabilitation service providers throughout the United States. Alliance's Aware software is used by 38 state VR agencies, 24 tribal nations and more than 12,000 VR professionals to help 1 million disabled persons find and maintain meaningful work each year.

Alliance also announced more conference sponsors today, including VFO, the world's leading assistive technology provider for the visually impaired, and the National Association of Workforce Agencies (NASWA), whose executive director, Scott Sanders, will deliver a keynote speech at the conference. MyObjectives, a goal achievement software app, and VR services provider, Libera, will also be featured at getAwareLive!

"These strategic sponsors bring valuable perspectives to our conference," said Darcy Schab, Director of Business Development and Marketing at Alliance Enterprises. "When we look at the totality of thought leaders who will speak at the event, the partner demonstrations, and the best-practice sharing, we believe that these two days will truly help shape the workplace in the WIOA era, opening future opportunities for people with disabilities."

Last month, Alliance announced that Microsoft would be the Diamond sponsor of the getAwareLive! conference. To learn more about the conference, go to http://www.getAwareLive.com.

Alliance Enterprises, Inc. (Alliance) announced today that David Steele, the fiscal unit chief at the Department of Education’s Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA), will offer new financial reporting recommendations at the company’s getAwareLive! conference on July 27. The conference brings together vocational rehabilitation (VR), disability advocacy, and workforce professionals from around the country with the purpose of improving work opportunities for people with disabilities.

Steele has worked at RSA for over 12 years, specializing in financial management of grant awards. He’s responsible for the financial oversight of over 300 grant awards and more than $3 billion in federal funds annually.

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) has been a hot topic in the VR community since the landmark legislation became law in 2014. The WIOA brought the Departments of Education and Labor together to work on workforce initiatives, notably to improve opportunities for people with disabilities.

In Steele’s presentation, he’ll offer federal guidance that positions state agencies to be in full compliance with accurate, complete and timely WIOA financial reporting, reducing the risk of recovery of funds.

Alliance Enterprises is the nation’s leading provider of case and financial management software for VR providers throughout the United States. Alliance’s Aware software was first deployed in 1994 and is now used by 38 state VR agencies, 22 tribal nations, and more than 12,000 VR professionals to help people with disabilities find and maintain meaningful work.

“We’re pleased to have David share his guidance with our rehabilitation professionals at getAwareLive. His insights and recommendations are timely and vitally important to VR agencies and the millions of people with disabilities who they serve,” said Darcy Schab, Director of Business Development and Marketing at Alliance Enterprises.

Steele joins former RSA Commissioner, Janet LaBreck, as a keynote speaker at getAwareLive. To learn more about Alliance’s two-day conference, go to getAwarelive.com.
