*Introduction to Dynamic Planning: The Charrette in Context*
This half-day NCI seminar will provide a complete overview of the NCI Dynamic Planning process. The NCI Dynamic Planning process provides holistic solutions to design and public involvement obstacles encountered in most conventional planning processes. Dynamic Planning begins with the project vision and ends with the plan's implementation. It includes the use of collaborative design and public involvement tools, such as charrettes, visioning, and workshops.

April 28-29, 2005
*Continuing Dynamic Planning: Professional Tools and Techniques*
This training will teach you how to plan a charrette using NCI's time-tested methods. The trainings will allow you not only to learn about the NCI Dynamic Planning and charrette processes, but will also give you the chance to hear from your peers about the problems they are facing and solving!

* NCI Public Meeting Facilitator(TM) Certification*
May 2-3, 2005
*NCI Public Meeting Facilitation: Professional Skills and Techniques*
Just knowing how to plan a charrette and design a great plan may not be enough to assure a successful charrette. The complete charrette manager must know how to handle the most volatile public meetings. Join us in Alexandria for this two-day workshop where you will learn by doing through a series of role-playing and hands-on exercises drawn from the most challenging real life situations as researched and tested by NCI.
