NAMI Washington's state trainings are offered both virtually or in person - check the application website to see how each training is being offered. If the training is offered in person, NAMI Washington will pay for meals, snacks, lodging and all training materials. Your NAMI affiliate is asked to cover your travel and other expenses that you may incur to attend this training. Lodging will be at a nearby hotel, and is single occupancy. If the training is offered virtually, then your training materials and the cost to ship them are covered.
If you need to cancel after being accepted, notify the NAMI Washington staff, no later than a week before the training otherwise your affiliate will be invoiced for $50.00 for late-dropout if the training materials have already been sent. Cancelled spots are filled with applications
from the waiting list for the class, not by sending
another affiliate member.
