Engaging Communities with Pro Bono Planning

Join Chapter representatives and APA staff for a webinar on Friday, October 21 from 11-12 CST to learn how to start a pro bono planning initiative. Representatives from California, Mississippi, South Carolina and Washington will discuss their respective programs, what has worked for them, and examples of projects they have conducted. Attendees will learn how to start and maintain a program, recruit volunteers, evaluate community applications, and discuss the benefits for the community and the volunteer planners.

October is National Community Planning Month, CPAT programs allow planners a great chance to give back to their communities, while also getting the opportunity to practice creative planning. AICP Planners can earn up to 8 CM for their pro bono work. This free event is worth 1 CM.
