Launched in 2005 as the New Directors Institute, the Planning Leadership Institute (PLI) provides planning directors and others in leadership roles with a full day of intensive training and professional reflection.

PLI is designed for planning directors and others to explore the nature of leadership, address challenges, and shape your legacy in your community. You will not want to miss this once-a-year opportunity to connect with a select group of your peers for a dynamic training program developed by APA in collaboration with a number of seasoned directors from around the country.

Explore the nature of planning leadership, define a "big idea" for leading change, and learn about a wide range of skills, tools, and tactics to build your team, communicate with stakeholders, and manage change to shape a legacy of good planning in your community. 

Discover the secrets to success in an interactive environment led by a professional leadership trainer and a distinguished faculty of highly accomplished planners. Participants will leave with a work plan for leading change in their communities.

Sponsored by the City Planning and Management Division.
