National Charrette Institute returns to Chicago this fall!

The National Charrette Institute (NCI) is excited to announce their biggest training update in years, both reducing time and cost. Now attendees can earn both the NCI Charrette System and the NCI Charrette Management and Facilitation certificates in only 3.5 days of training! This

shorter schedule allows NCI to offer the two courses at lower rates for a combined savings of

about $300, while potentially saving you travel costs.

The first offering of this compressed schedule will be at the American Planning Association

headquarters in Chicago, IL, Oct. 24-27, 2017.

These training sessions are for anyone involved in transforming communities and organizations, including city and regional planners, public health staff, developers, architects, land and transportation planning consultants, and citizen advocates.

This set of trainings represents a collaborative project management system centered on the co-

design process using charrettes. Course content includes project assessment tools for gauging

the length and cost of a charrette using project budget, political considerations and design

difficulty. Also included in the training are conflict resolution tools, high- and low-tech tools for

stakeholder engagement and public meetings.

This course is approved for 15.25 continuing education hours by the AIA, and by AICP for 15.25

CM credits.
