Planning Academy 102 Webinar Series Underway: Look @ Our SummerEvents

Are you working as a planner, in either the public or private sector, and find you still need to know “the basics” or need a refresher to do your work well?

Are you struggling to understand what other planners seem to automatically just “know”?

Then this series of workshops is for you!  Each month, we’ll explore a different topic with a seasoned expert who will break things down on your level. Plan to join us for one, two or all of our noon webinars to increase your knowledge about relevant planning topics and earn CMs.
