The Michigan Chapter holds exclusive licensing from National NAHRO to offer high-quality NAHRO professional development programs for Commissioners right here in Michigan.  Commissioners can obtain the training they need to effectively discharge their responsibilities on the Board and save time without breaking the bank (and the budget) traveling to high-priced venues in other parts of the country.

Completion of both seminars qualifies commissioners to receive certification from NAHRO, as a NAHRO Certified Commissioner (NCC).  Participants may attend either seminar at a cost of $350, or the combined seminars at a cost of $600.

Space is limited.  Sign up soon!
