Victim Impact Panel Information: Attention! Please read your diversion/probation order to determine if you have a deadline by which date you must provide documentation of your attendance of the VIP.
Note-- Choices is not part of the Victim Impact Panel; we offer the information below as a courtesy for those individuals needing quick access to dates and details. Choices staff cannot accept payment for the VIP, and will not provide directions to the program sites. Please go to the madd.org website link, below, for further assistance.
NEW 2019/2020 VIP DATES--
The dates for the Olathe presentation of the VIP should be announced by mid-to-late August 2019. OR; please go to www.madd.org/ksvip and look at other locations and dates elsewhere in the Kansas City metro area.
You may pay online ($35) at www.madd.org/ksvip If paying at the door, payment of $35 must be in MONEY ORDER ONLY and made out to Kansas MADD.
You must bring a valid photo ID (and the money order if not paying online) to the presentation. ***The Olathe program begins at 6:00pm-- Other locations may begin at 7:00*** We suggest you make a point to be IN THE BUILDING NO LATER THAN 30 minutes prior to the program's start time.

Cell phones and other electronic devices must be off
If any rule is violated, or if an attendee is rude/disrespectful to the staff or panelists, the individual will be required to immediately leave the presentation, and will not be provided documentation of his/her attendance.
Your proof of attendance certificate will be provided to you at the program. Choices' advice; Make a copy of your certificate/receipt for your own records, then be sure to turn in your original certificate to your diversion/probation officer or monitor as soon as possible-- The longer you hold on to that documentation, the greater the possibility it may become lost or destroyed!
Choices encourages our clients to, with their cell phone, take a photo of their attendance certificate and email it (after 8pm the night of the presentation), to firstname.lastname@example.org
No certificate = attending the program again.
