On-Site Expertise

Larger communities often have staff to explain information, regulations, funding options or provide other technical expertise for committees, commissions, board, councils, or other decision making or advisory groups. 

Smaller communities or organizations may not have professional staff to assist in this way.  CGS staff can attend your meeting to share their knowledge.  Your community or organization will provide background material in advance of the meeting. You may request additional research before the meeting as well.  Costs will be based on an hourly rate and an estimate will be provided in advance.
