There are only 5 spaces left in Jim Nelson’s Environmental Negotiations class. This 3-day training is being held November 5-7, at Padilla Bay Reserve, Mount Vernon. This class has become one of the most popular and highly rated trainings that has ever been offered through our program.

Participant comments include:

  • “The most organized training that I’ve received on the topic of negotiations in my 25 years of state service. We should provide this regularly and earlier in the careers of staff whose responsibilities include representing the Department in negotiation.”
  • “All staff members should be able to attend this training. It was one of the best, if not the best, class I’ve taken.”
  • “Fantastic training experience with lots of learning among co-workers!”

The cost for this 3-day training is $595 and includes a catered lunch each day and all materials. If you are an AICP member, you will earn 21 CM credits.


If the class fills before you have a chance to sign up, be sure and add your name to the waiting list.
