National Association for Interpretation Region 10 Workshop

Rescheduled for late September

9:00 am – 5:00 pm

$30 NAI members, $45 non-members | Registration Required


This workshop provides participants an opportunity to discuss new and innovative ways heritage interpreters can engage their audience. We will openly explore solutions and share ideas focused on this year’s workshop theme, “Engaging Your Audience in Memorable Ways”, uniting as interpreters to facilitate meaningful connections with our audiences. With time to learn from professionals in the field, network with fellow educators, explore each unique host site, and attend off-site field trips, this is sure to be a memorable experience. We look forward to meeting each of you, and providing you with new skills and suggestions for your future programs and interactions.

The National Association for Interpretation (NAI) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit professional organization dedicated to advancing the profession of heritage interpretation, currently serving about 7,000 members in the United States, Canada, and over thirty other nations. Individual members include those who work at parks, museums, nature centers, zoos, botanical gardens, aquariums, historical and cultural sites, commercial tour companies, and theme parks. The Tillamook Forest Center is one of six sites throughout the Pacific Northwest region hosting this workshop. To view details about the workshop and to register, visit: NAI Region 10's Website.
