Short Workshops & Information Sessions
NSBA offers short workshops and learning opportunities at various times through the year. These are generally advertised through our website, our monthly eNews to members, email notices and other methods like social media. We also share information about learning opportunities through partner organizations.
When a need is identified (and our funding allows), the NSBA coordinates and delivers targeted training courses. Like our short workshops and information sessions, we advertise these through our website, email distribution list, social media, and partner organizations as well as paid advertising. Watch this page and our Events page for opportunities or follow us on social media.
