My experience is that getting some people to compliance takes a lot of hand
holding, not the kind usually engaged in by TAP programs, but by either
enforcement actions or consultants who are hired in view of a threat of or
actual enforcement! (Some of those consultants actually are on the payroll
but usually temporarily!)
Others just need a little wake up call and a little help figuring out that
they really need to attend to this stuff. They are the ones who benefit
from seminars, etc., and a TAP program. However, few state run
seminars provide PRACTICAL and COST-EFFECTIVE paths to compliance

This isn't a formal survey (and of course I have my own opinion),
I'd like to hear what the TAPs think on this issue.
send your replies to me personally and just indicate if you
think one on

or if you think
there is more compliance bang for the buck through
group activities like
I know there are many, many factors and caveats that
issue, but I'm just looking for a general response from
those of you
that have to do compliance assistance.
Please send your
responses to me personally to avoid tying up
