Below is a list of all of the workshops that have been offered through the CTP. We typically offer classes until the demand wanes. If there is a class that you would like to see offered again, please let us know. Programs can be as detailed or general as desired, last anywhere from one hour to full (or multi) day, and tailored for large or small groups. You can request such a program by contacting the CTP Coordinator.

Additionally, the CTP can help address the complexities of decision-making through technical assistance, including, but not limited to:

  • meeting facilitation
  • stakeholder engagement
  • workshop design
  • survey and evaluation design
  • strategic planning
  • serving on local committees and advisory boards
