2019 NAI Sierra Pacific Spring Workshop

Welcome to NAI Sierra Pacific (Region 9) Spring 2019 Workshop!

Please join us for 3 days of professional development, networking, fun and learning in the historic Gold Rush town of Columbia. 

With this year’s theme, Digging Deeper: Mining the Past for History’s Untold Stories, we encourage attendees to look beyond the usual stories and approaches, to dig for the “under-told” tales and fresh views of the sites, objects and concepts that you interpret. 

For full details on the Workshop visit the Region 9 website.
