APA Community Assistance Program (CAP) Training Webinar (CM | 1.0)
April 3, 2012 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFREE
The CAP Training Webinar is intended for professional planners, community organizers, and citizens interested in community planning.
AICP members will gain a more nuanced set of skills related to organizing and participating in community workshops and other public engagement strategies. Viewers will also learn effective ways of participating in public forums by developing new ways of eliciting input and important feedback from residents and stakeholders.

The training will include a brief history of APA’s Community Assistance Program, specifically the Community Planning Workshop and the CPAT, and cover different topics associated with participating in and organizing similar events.

Wayne Feiden, FAICP
Director of Planning and Development, Northampton, Massachusetts
