New Guardianship Guide Published

WINGS Tips: State Replicaton Guide for Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders 2014 is now available online. The guide was produced by the ABA Commission on Law and Aging for the National Guardianship Network with support from the State Justice Institute and the Borchard Foundation Center on Law and Aging. 

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.

The guide highlights the hallmarks of successful WINGS groups and outlines ten steps for launching and maintaining your own WINGS program.
