NATOA can tailor an In-Community workshop based on the needs identified by the local Trustees/members. NATOA will scan through its membership roster to help match the expertise to the needs identified. Costs for these sessions are usually based on actual costs incurred in running the session (generally travel costs are to be covered). Non-member communities would be charged a session fee as well.
