Commission Assistance and Mentoring Program (CAMP)

The Commission Assistance and Mentoring Program (CAMP) is NAPC’s signature training program.  Launched in the early 1990s as CAP (Commission Assistance Program), the program provides intensive, on-site training for local preservation commission members and staff.   CAMP brings expert speakers to your community for a day or day-and-a-half session to cover fundamental topics and issues related to commission operation. Topics include: Federal Standards and Local Design Guidelines, Preservation Law, Meeting Procedures, Planning, Survey, and Designation of Local Resources, and Public Support for Preservation.
