Through NLA’s professional development programs, you and your staff will strengthen skills, expand expertise, and be motivated to perform at a higher level.

NLA provides several different types of programs including in-person classes, convention seminars, networking groups, industry tours, and on-line training.

  • We use high quality instructors who are experts in their fields. 
  • Most classes and tours are held in late fall and the winter months when business is less busy.  
  • Webinars are scheduled throughout the year in short 1-hour sessions. 

Knowledge Central, NLA’s online HR management and training tool, is available 24 hours a day - 7 days a week for employees to do regulatory compliance training.

Thank you for another great professional development season!  The 2017-2018 Professional Development Calendar including NEW LumberTech classes, owner/manager roundtables, Future Lumber Leaders roundtables, and conventions seminars will be available later this summer.  Please check back for a full line-up of programs!


If you have an idea for a class topic you would like to see offered or if you are interested in sponsoring/hosting a class in 2017-2018, please contact Connie Johnson at or (763) 595-4045.
