Professional workshops are offered by the Cultural and Heritage Commission, on an annual basis. Each year, topics are selected to address the needs of local groups, as identified through assessment surveys. Sessions require pre-registration, but are available without charge.  Organizations tell us that the workshops are very helpful and often ask for topics to be repeated.  We encourage both new and experienced volunteers, board members and staff to participate in the workshops, but busy schedules often don’t permit this. How best to make training available? 

e-Classroom is the answer - providing professional level information in an easy-to-use format, that allows for you to learn at your own pace. Periodically, new workshops will be added. We would love to hear from you – do you like the format?  What themes do you suggest for future e-Classroom training?
