APA's Planners Training Service two-day workshops are designed for experienced practitioners looking for in-depth learning from top-tier faculty. Come to Boston June 16-19 and come away with new skills in conflict resolution, hazard mitigation, sustainable planning or zoning. Act by May 15 for early-bird savings.
Four Workshops, Four-Star Faculty
Research and practice come together when University of North Carolina professor emeritus David R. Godschalk, FAICP, teams up with Benjamin A. Herman, FAICP, leader of a nationwide planning practice. Learn the latest and be among the first to read Godschalk's forthcoming PAS Report, "Sustaining Places Comprehensive Plans."
When it comes to handling contentious controversies, Cornell University's John Forester wrote the book, and his copresenter, Michael Hughes, is featured in it. Your copy of "Planning in the Face of Conflict" is free with your PTS workshop registration.
Presenters Christopher Duerksen and Craig Richardson are planners and land-use lawyers out to help communities go greener. Past APA President James Duncan, FAICP, joins them in an encore workshop with tips and tools on alternative energy, food security, and more.
James C. Schwab, AICP, manages APA's Hazards Planning Research Center. He'll present alongside floodplain specialist Darrin Punchard, AICP, and Kenneth C. Topping, FAICP, who helped lead Los Angeles's recovery after the Northridge Earthquake.
