FREE AICP Exam Prep Workshop & Upcoming Chapter Webcasts

The American Planning Association-Illinois Chapter is proud to host its Fall 2015 AICP Exam Prep Workshop at the 2015 APA-IL State Conference. The training workshop has been updated to reflect an exam refresh in 2013 and will provide a review of key planning topics that could potentially appear on the exam. The training session will be led by the same trainers who conducted the AICP Exam Prep at the last six National APA Conferences, including last year’s conference in Seattle. The trainers have also conducted the APA-IL training sessions since 2005 and the National Capital Area Chapter (NCAC) of the American Planning Association serving planners in Washington, D.C. and Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties, MD since 2012. All are welcome and encouraged to attend, especially if you are taking the exam in November or next May. Please share this information with anyone that may be interested in attending. Anyone with questions, and to RSVP, please contact Trevor Dick, APA-IL Professional Development Officer (PDO) at Presenters
