Conclave Training Initiative
The purpose of the Conclave Training Initiative (CTI) is to provide at least one training session each year for sections to use to augment their own conclave training. It was created based on a goal from the 2003-2007 OA Strategic Plan calling for "...an initiative to enhance learning opportunities at section conclaves".
Each year, the national OA committee provides a syllabus and training support material that is distributed to each section chief at the December national planning meeting. This process provides training support to sections and also serves as a vehicle to deliver consistent messages on specific training topics across the nation.
Resource materials are also available in PDF format online through this web site. Accompanying PowerPoint presentations are also available online.
To download the PowerPoint presentations for later use, move your mouse over the presentation you want and right click once. This will bring up a menu, then select "Save Target As" (Internet Explorer) or "Save Link Target As" (Netscape/Mozilla). A file save box will pop up, and you can specify a file name and folder to put it in.
