Supported attendees are responsible for all incidentals and travel. If you would like to request an additional room night due to travel distance or alternative support is needed, pre-approval is necessary and a request must come from your agency’s Air Director (or their designee) and emailed to MARAMA’s Executive Director, Julie McDill, as well as MARAMA’s Training Coordinators, Jackie Burkhardt and Sue Dilli (training at marama.org), prior to the event. A list of what type of support is needed, an estimate of additional costs and the reason for the support is essential to include. Any attendee who lives within 50 miles of the course location who believes overnight support is necessary must request specific approval and provide justification.

Additional support is available upon request for scheduled speakers and for Air Directors wishing to attend the workshop.
