Hosting a CM Credit Event
Step One – Determine the Event Type
Is it a Single Event or a Multi-Part Event? Is it In-Person, Online, or On Demand?
A single event is a live in-person or live online event held one time on a specific date. If applying for APA Florida-sponsored CM credits for this event, please use either the Single Event In-Person or Online form. (Forms: Single Online | Single In-Person - download as Word.docx)
A multipart event is a live event with multiple activities (like a conference) where participants have several activities to choose from. If applying for APA Florida-sponsored CM credits for this event, please use this form. (Downloads as Word.docx)
On Demand event is one that is available at any time, such as a recording of a
webinar or in-person event. If applying for APA Florida-sponsored CM credits for
this event, please use this form. (Downloads as Word.docx)
Step Two – Content Considerations
To be eligible for CM credits the following criteria must be met:
The event must be designed to meet a specific planning-related training objective.
The event must be designed to teach subject matter in appropriate depth and scope for a planner in current practice with at least 4 years of professional experience after earning a 2-year masters degree in planning.
Address the demonstrated education needs of AICP members as defined by the AICP’s Core Competencies:
- Fundamental Knowledge
- Research, Technical and Analytical
- Communication and Interaction
- Plan Making
- Plan Implementation and Placemaking
- Integrity, Values and Ethics
- Relevancy and Professional Commitment
Step Three – During the Event
Keep a registration log – maintain paper or electronic copies. An example is provided here.
Remind your attendees to log their credits and provide them information to help them find the event in the CM log, such as the title of the event or the provider’s name.
Step Four – Following the Event
Maintain the registration log for two years. If APA Florida sponsored the credits, send these documents to the VP of Continuing Education within seven (7) days of the date of your event.
Check your provider dashboard to see how participants rated the event.
