NCI Charrette System Certificate Training

Delaney + Associates is partnering with the National Charrette Institute to bring its NCI Charrette System certificate training to Vancouver, November 14-16, 2017.

This training represents a collaborative project management system centered on the co-design process using charrettes.

Also included in the case study-based training are conflict resolution tools, high- and low-tech tools for stakeholder engagement and public meetings.

The course is open to the public, but space is limited – register today to ensure your spot, and claim the early registration discount (until Sept. 30).
