The Crisis Negotiators Association of Minnesota (CNAMN) was designed to serve as a central hub for professional growth and networking for crisis negotiators throughout the state of Minnesota. When it was realized that Minnesota was only one of a few states without a crisis negotiator association, we knew it was time. Also, there were only a couple of in-state training opportunities for negotiators. Society has placed an increased level of importance on the role of trained Crisis Negotiators. We encourage crisis negotiators and crisis negotiation team advisors to register to become a member of the association to unlock excellent training and networking.
