Conference Registration for Members in Transition

Going in to “transition” is a very difficult situation that all too many members face at some point in their local government careers.  Any job change is difficult, but when its forced on someone for reasons that often have nothing to do with their job performance it can be traumatic.

If you are a “Member in Transition” and have been fired or forced to resign your position in local government and are now “in transition”, CAMA will provide a complimentary registration for you.   Hotel and travel expenses are at your cost.  Register under the “Members In Transition” category on-line, but CAMA’s membership department must have been notified of your status for you to use this option.
