2016 NTC: Glimpse the Future

Education and skill building. That’s what the NAP Training Conference (NTC) is all about — two and a half days of workshops and plenary sessions for parliamentarians at all levels. That’s why you definitely don’t want to miss the 2016 NTC, August 26-28, in the Denver metro area.

This year’s program will be based on the body of knowledge published by NAP in April. It provides a roadmap for your development as a parliamentarian, regardless of whether you are new to parliamentary procedure or an established professional.

We’re especially excited about the special plenary session the newly created Commission on Credentialing will facilitate to kick off the conference on Friday, August 26. Find out what the future of credentialing for parliamentarians is, how it will fit with the body of knowledge, how the credentialing process will change, and what the retention requirements will be. It’s intended for all parliamentarians — those who are currently credentialed and those thinking about it. It will be the perfect opportunity to ask questions and offer feedback to the commission.

This is your future — be informed, sharpen your skills, expand your knowledge. Actively participate and let your voice be heard. You’ll be glad you did.

Remember to plan extra days prior to or after and enjoy all the wonders of Colorado and the Denver area.
