Are you looking for opportunities to earn CM credits online?
Are you interested in FREE CM credits?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then APA Chapter Webcasts are for you!
The APA-IL is part of a consortium of APA Chapters & Divisions that provide FREE webcasts (therefore FREE CM) to all consortium members. As a member of the APA-IL - you are a member! Enjoy these live webcasts from the comfort of wherever you can access the internet. Webcasts run most Fridays from noon - 1:30 pm CST.
In 2017, the Consortium included 38 APA Chapters and 15 APA Divisions and held 28 webcasts, each qualifying for 1.5 CM credits – that’s 42 CM credits. Over 8,000 planners from across the United States have tuned in so far in 2017. Wow!
28 webcasts * 1.5 CM = 42 CM Credits Offered in 2017!
Distance Education Webcasts
Each year, two of the webcasts qualify for Law and Ethics credits. For 2017, those webcasts have already taken place. Did you miss out? No worries. The Consortium also offers 2 webcasts for Distance Education credits (including 1 Law and 1 Ethics) through the end of December 2017.
Fair Housing: Serious Responsibility, Serious Liability - 1.5 CM Law Credits (#e.9120416)
Planning Ethics: Dealing with Problem Boards and Board Members - 1.5 CM Ethics Credits (#e.9119060)
These Distance Education webcasts are not live - they can be viewed anytime and law/ethics CM credit will be earned (just make sure to view them before December 31st)!
Upcoming 2017 Webcasts:
12/8 - Step by Step: Catalyzing Walkable Redevelopment (APA-NC)
12/15- Women in Planning: Guiding Emerging Professionals (Women & Planning Division)

Submit Your Webcast Ideas for 2018
In order for the consortium to function, each of the consortium's participating members are asked to provide the webcasts. Chapters and Divisions are already booking their sessions for 2018. If you have an idea for a webcast, please email Trevor Dick, AICP, APA-IL Professional Development Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s easy, just email Trevor your topic and name of the presenter(s) and the Consortium will take it from there! We'd love to have you represent the Illinois Chapter!
