Dear Loyal CATT Members

The CATT office is now open since Truckee, as part of the Greater Sacramento Region, has been lifted from the Regional Stay at Home Order. The health and safety of our membership and Truckee-Tahoe community continue to be top priority at this time. Staff communicates weekly industry updates and resources related to COVID-19. If you are interested in scheduling a meeting in the CATT office, please call ahead so we can ensure that CDC guidelines for workplaces are being followed. Attending CATT meetings remotely will continue to be offered as an option.
