NAHRO Commissioners Training - FAQ

When is it?
The NAHRO Commissioner Training is a 2 class certification with a class offered at each Annual Meeting.

Does it conflict with any other training at the Conference?

We will have 2 commissioner training tracks running concurrently so if someone doesn’t want to attend the NAHRO training there will be something offered.

Is it actually training for Commissioners?


Is this training included in the registration fee or is it an additional $200?
Additional $200 per person

Is it any different from the standard AAHRA Commissioner training?

Yes, by completing both classes you would receive a NAHRO certification


Deadline extended to July 23

AAHRA Forum 
AAHRA has a new link on the website entitled “FORUM”. The FORUM will be a way for users to submit questions and have them answered by their peers for everyone to see.
When you first click the FORUM link, you will be asked to create a username and password. Your username will be displayed when you create a new question or respond to someone. 
There are 2 channels created to help with organizing questions. The first is labeled General Questions and the second is Vendors/RFPs. Choose which your questions fit into best. For instance, if you want to know the name of a good pest control company, you should ask under Vendors/RFPs. If you question is related to a policy, choose to ask the question under General Questions.
