2020 Professional Development Cancellation

Due to the health and safety concerns currently facing the country, the difficult decision has been made to

cancel all sessions of Northwest Clerks Institute 2020.  Refunds will be processed within the next week. There is no need to contact us regarding your refund.

This decision did not come easy as we know how important this training is to our colleagues in the field but your health and safety are our priority.

For those who have paid, a full refund will be processed. There is no need to contact us to process your refund. Credit card payments will automatically go back on the card used and check refunds will be issued back to the organization who paid. If there are any issues, we will reach out to you directly.

We value each and every one of you who take the time out to attend our institute and can’t wait to be back together again in 2021. The 2021 dates for each PD are as follows: PD1 June 6-11; PD2 June 13-18; PD3 June 20-25; PD4 June 14-17.
