New Staff Orientation:
This is a 10-or-11-day training that includes: Orientation to Cru, and Ministry Partner Development training.

If you will only be attending New Staff Orientation, please be aware that you will need to take the required IBS courses (about 2.5 weeks) the next time they are offered. Keep in mind that this will necessitate travel to two conferences, which may result in a greater expense. For example, if you attend NSO in January, you would attend Summer IBS.
