Leadership Development Institute Funding

Leadership Development Institute 

NSAMRT will be funding an individual to attend the CAMRT Leadership Development Institute in Ottawa on June 12-14, 2020. NSAMRT encourages individuals to apply for this opportunity both through CAMRT and NSAMRT as CAMRT also funds selected MRTs to attend using very similar application criteria.
